Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 May 2004
Status: inactive
Page Count: 52
ICS Code (Ignitability and burning behaviour of materials and products): 13.220.40
ICS Code (Electrical engineering in general): 29.020
scope:

This part of IEC 60695 provides guidance on the factors which affect the toxic hazard from fires involving electrotechnical products, and provides information on the methodologies recommended by ISO TC 92 (SC 3) for estimating and reducing toxic hazard from fires, as expressed in ISO/TR 9122 (Parts 1 to 6), ISO 13344 and ISO/TS 13571.

There is no single test to realistically assess toxic hazard in fires. Small-scale toxic potency tests are not capable on their own of assessing fire hazard. Current toxicity tests attempt to measure the toxic potency of a laboratory generated fire effluent. Toxic potency should not be confused with toxic hazard.

One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of basic safety publications in the preparation of its publications.
