scope:

EN 50396 contains non-electrical test methods required for the testing of harmonized low voltage energy cables, especially those rated at up to and including 450/750 V. The particular cable standard dictates the tests which need to be performed on the relevant cable type. It also specifies whether the specific test is a type test (T), a sample test (S) or a routine test (R) for the particular cable type. The requirements to be met during or after the test are specified for the particular cable type in the relevant cable standard. However, some test requirements are obvious and universal, such as the fact that no cracks shall occur during ozone test, and these are stated in the particular test method. Test methods for use specifically in utility power cables are not covered by this EN. The can be found in HD 605. Test methods for use specifically in communications cables are the responsibility of CENELEC TC 46X. At present such test methods are given in EN 50289 (series).
