What is BS EN 50525-1?

BS EN 50525-1 is a European Standard that gives general requirements for rigid and flexible energy cables of rated voltages U0/U up to and including 450/750 V a.c., used in power installations and with domestic and industrial appliances and equipment.

It is part of the BS EN 50525 series of standards. The BS EN 50525-2 series and the BS EN 50525-3 series specify requirements for specific types of cables.

How does the standard help?

BS EN 50525-1 will help ensure cables are safe and reliable when properly selected, installed and used.

It helps by setting out those characteristics and manufacturing requirements that affect safety. It also gives methods for checking cables against these requirements.

Cables that meet the requirements of BS EN 50525 satisfy the essential health and safety requirements of the Low Voltage Directive (2006/95/EC).
