This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2011. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- update to be in line with IEC 62271-1:2017 and alignment of the voltage ratings and the test voltages.
- addition of new information for welds on pressurized parts and gas tightness.
