|ICS Code (Electrical engineering in general):||29.020|
This part of IEC 60695 provides guidance for assessing the fire hazard of electrotechnical products (see clause 4) and for the resulting development of fire hazard testing (see clause 5) as related directly to harm to people, animals or property. Products, as defined in this standard, relate to materials, components or complete end-use products.
This standard is intended as guidance to IEC committees, and should be used with respect to their individual applications. Attention is drawn to the principles in IEC Guide 104, and to the role of committees with safety pilot functions and safety group functions.
One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of basic safety publications in the preparation of its publications.
