|ICS Code (Electrical engineering in general):||29.020|
The particular requirements of this part of IEC 60364 apply to electrical installations of:
- basins of swimming pools and paddling pools and their surrounding zones;
- areas in natural waters, lakes in gravel pits and coastal and similar areas, specially intended to be occupied by persons for swimming, paddling and similar purposes, and their surrounding zones. Such areas in natural waters, lakes in gravel pits and coastal and similar areas, are considered as swimming pools;
- basins of fountains and their surrounding zones.
NOTE In these areas, in normal use, the effect of an electric shock is increased by a reduction in body resistance and contact of the body with earth potential.
For swimming pools for medical use, special requirements may apply.
This standard does not cover the use of mobile equipment, e.g. pool cleaning equipment.
