It follows the numbering of that standard. This technical report is written for everyone concerned with the design, the selection and supply of equipment, as well as the persons who install, maintain and use electrical installations. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 1993, and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- guidance associated with conduit systems, cable ducting systems, cable trunking systems, cable tray systems and cable ladder systems has been added giving, for example, recommended maximum straight lengths of conduit to ease the installation circuit wiring;
