Directives or regulations
2014/35/EU Low voltage (LVD)

Although the standard’s status is withdrawn, it still has the presumption of conformity in the meaning of regulation 2014/35/EU and conformance with the regulation ’s requirements can be guaranteed by using the withdrawn version of the standard. The presumption of conformity is valid until a corresponding amendment is published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This HD collates and specifies the test methods to be used for testing polymeric insulated and sheathed electric cables, of rated voltage up to and including 20,8/36 kV, intended for public distribution systems, and for use in power generating plants and sub-stations.  Test methods in this HD are additional to those already harmonised, e.g. EN 60332-1 series and EN 60811 series, and are used for testing cable types specified in HD 603, HD 604, HD 620, HD 622, HD 626 and HD 627. In each case, these HDs give complementary information needed for the practical application to each specific type. Therefore the present HD as such is not sufficient for carrying out and evaluating the tests on electric cables.  Full test conditions (e.g. temperatures, durations) and/or test requirements are not specified in this HD. Such data needed to carry out the tests is given in the particular sections.
