This International Standard applies to the protection of persons and animals against electric shock. It is intended to give fundamental principles and requirements which are common to electrical installations, systems and equipment or necessary for their co-ordination.
This standard has been prepared for installations, systems and equipment without a voltage limit.
NOTE There are some clauses in this standard which refer to low-voltage and high-voltage systems, installations and equipment. For the purpose of this standard, low -voltage is any rated voltage up to and including 1 000 V a.c. or 1 500 V d.c. High voltage is any rated voltage exceeding 1 000 V a.c. or 1 500 V d.c.
The requirements of this standard apply only if they are incorporated, or are referred to, in the relevant standards. It is not intended to be used as a stand-alone standard.
