Technical & Standardisation
Harmonised requirements
Close cooperation with European and International bodies

Europacable is actively engaged in working with and contributing to ongoing workstreams of all standardisation bodies relevant to wire and cable products.

The objective of our work in this area is to identify environmental standards which may have an impact on the development of cable standards and to ensure liaison and minimise any possible discrepancies.

Areas of major importance relate to CPR, fire related standards, material performance standards, halogen definitions and testing of products.

In detail, we partner with

  • IEC
  • National Standardisation Bodies of EU Member States
