This document, which is a Technical Report, provides information on cable shrinkage characterisation of optical fibre cables that consist of standard glass optical fibres for telecommunication application. The characterisation is directed to the effects of cable shrinkage or cable element shrinkage on the termination of cables. Shrinkage can or cannot be a concern depending on the method of termination. Examples of different cable termination cases are included and described. Tests for the evaluation of cable shrinkage are recommended that can be used as indicators, and shrinkage classification by several grades are given.
