Depending on the geographical area involved, different standards and regulations will apply. Europe is usually governed by CENELEC (EN) but is, in fact, somewhat influenced by international standards (IEC). Nevertheless, when it comes to safety, it is often national regulations that predominate, such as NF standards in France or BS in the United Kingdom. For the United States and for Asia, American standards (UL) dictate the rules for installation and for types of products to be installed. Whether local or global, the "fire behaviour" standards characterise the reaction or the flame resistance of cables, but the characteristics of the smoke produced during combustion must also be considered in terms of human safety. The essential point is to choose the best product in relation to the installation environment and application.

In this White Paper :

- Understanding the criteria of each standard : flame propagation, fire resistance, smoke generation, etc.

- International standards and their European equivalents

- Specific aspects of French standards

- Which standard for which application ?
