Fire hazard testing - Part 1-30: Guidance for assessing the fire hazard of electrotechnical products - Preselection testing process - General guidelines

IEC 60695-1-30:2008 provides guidance for assessing and choosing candidate materials, components or sub-assemblies for making an end-product based upon preselection testing. It describes how preselection provides comparative fire hazard test methods to evaluate the performance of a test specimen and how preselection can be used in the selection of materials, parts, components and sub-assemblies during the design stage of an end-product. The major changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: - Further explanation given in the introduction and Scope - Clause 3 changes to the definitions - Clause 4 clarifications of the principles of product design considering preselection - Clause 5 clarifications of the advantages and limitations of preselection - Clause 6 clarifications of the aspects of preselection relative to hazard assessment - Annex A changes in the references for examples of test methods which may be relevant to preselection - Annex B changes in the illustrative example of the flowchart of the use of preselection tests for resistance to fire hazards of a specific product type. This publication has the status of a basic safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104 and ISO/IEC Guide 51.

La CEI 60695-1-30:2008 fournit des lignes directrices pour l'évaluation et le choix des matériaux, composants et sous-ensembles candidats en vue de l'élaboration d'un produit fini fondé sur des essais de présélection. Elle décrit la manière dont la présélection fournit des méthodes d'essai comparatives sur les risques du feu pour évaluer la performance d'une éprouvette et la façon dont la présélection peut être utilisée dans la sélection des matériaux, des parties, des composants et des sous-ensembles pendant la phase de conception d'un produit fini. Les principales modifications par rapport à l'édition antérieure sont indiquées ci-dessous: - Explications supplémentaires fournies dans l'introduction et le domaine d'application - Article 3 modifications apportées aux définitions - Article 4 éclaircissements des principes de conception des produits en prenant en compte la présélection - Article 5 éclaircissements des avantages et des limites de las présélection - Article 6 éclaircissements des aspects de la présélection par rapport à l'évaluation des risques - Annexe A modification des références, par exemple des méthodes d'essai qui pervent être applicables à la présélection - Annexe B modifications de l'exemple illustratif de l'organigramme d'utilisation des essais de présélection pour la résistance aux risques du feu d'un type de produit spécifique. Elle a le statut de publication fondamentale de sécurité, conformément au Guide CEI 104 et au Guide ISO/CEI 51.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 60695-1-30 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 89:

Fire hazard testing.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC 60695-1-30, published in

2002, and constitutes a technical revision.
The main changes with respect to the previous edition are listed below:
– Further explanation given in the introduction and scope.

– Clause 4: clarifications of the principles of product design considering preselection.

– Clause 5: clarifications of the advantages and limitations of preselection.

– Clause 6: clarifications of the aspects of preselection relative to hazard assessment.

to preselection.

– Annex B: changes in the illustrative example of the flowchart of the use of preselection

tests for resistance to fire hazards of a specific product type.

It has the status of a basic safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104 and

ISO/IEC Guide 51.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

This publication is to be used in conjunction with the future IEC 60695-1-10 and IEC 60695-

1-11 .

A list of all parts in the IEC 60695 series, under the general title Fire hazard testing, can be

found on the IEC website.
Part 1 consists of the following sub-parts:

Part 1-10 : Guidance for assessing the fire hazard of electrotechnical products –

General guidelines

Part 1-11 : Guidance for assessing the fire hazard of electrotechnical products –

Fire hazard assessment

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the maintenance result date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the

data related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be

INTRODUCTION

In the design of any electrotechnical product, the risk of fire and the potential hazards

associated with fire need to be considered. In this respect the objective of component, circuit

and equipment design as well as the choice of materials is to reduce to acceptable levels the

potential risks of fire even in the event of foreseeable abnormal use, malfunction or failure.

The future IEC 60695-1-10 and IEC 60695-1-11 provide guidance on how this is to be

accomplished using quantitative and qualitative fire tests.

The information gained from properly designed small-scale tests can be used as an aid for the

preselection of proper materials, parts, components or sub-assemblies with regard to the fire

hazard evaluation of the final en
