Cable management systems - Test method for content of halogens

IEC 63355:2022 specifies a method for the determination of the content of halogens in cable management system (CMS) products or system components made completely or partly of combustible material(s). The determination is made by combustion and subsequent analysis of the combustion product by ion chromatography. This document specifies how CMS products or system components can be declared as halogen-free.

TEST METHOD FOR CONTENT OF HALOGENS
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 itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

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.

IEC 63355 has been prepared by subcommittee 23A: Cable management systems, of IEC

technical committee 23: Electrical accessories. It is an International Standard.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:
Draft Report on voting
23A/997/FDIS 23A/999/RVD

Full information on the voting for its approval can be found in the report on voting indicated in

the above table.
The language used for the development of this International Standard is English.

This document was drafted in accordance with ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2, and developed in

accordance with ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1 and ISO/IEC Directives, IEC Supplement, available

at www.iec.ch/members_experts/refdocs. The main document types developed by IEC are

described in greater detail at www.iec.ch/standardsdev/publications.

CABLE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS –
TEST METHOD FOR CONTENT OF HALOGENS
1 Scope

This document specifies a method for the determination of the content of halogens in cable

management system (CMS) products or system components made completely or partly of

combustible material(s). The determination is made by combustion and subsequent analysis of

the combustion product by ion chromatography. This document specifies how CMS products or

system components can be declared as halogen-free.
This document is for environmental performance purposes only.

Compliance with this document does not imply the absence of toxicity, corrosivity or opacity of

produced smoke, or other reaction to fire characteristics. If any of these characteristics are to

be evaluated, the appropriate standards can be used.

The detection limit of this test method is typically 0,025 g of halogen per kg (0,002 5 %).

Halides insoluble in aqueous solution present in the original sample or produced during the

combustion step are not determined by this method.
2 Normative references

The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of their content

constitutes requirements of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies.

For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any

amendments) applies.

ISO 1716, Reaction to fire tests for products – Determination of the gross heat of combustion

(calorific value)
ISO 3696, Water for analytical laboratory use – Specification and test methods
3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.

ISO and IEC maintain terminological databases for use in standardization at the following

addresses:
• IEC Electropedia: available at https://www.electropedia.org/
• ISO Online browsing platform: available at https://www.iso.org/obp
3.1
halogen content

content of fluorine, chlorine, bromine and iodine as organic and inorganic compounds that can

be converted to halides (fluoride, chloride, bromide, iodide) by combustion and then absorbed

or dissolved in an aqueous solution

Note 1 to entry: The above definition is valid for this document only and does not strictly comply with the scientific

definition of halogen content.

3.2
combustible, adjective
capable of being ignited and burned
[SOURCE: ISO 13943:2017, 3.52]
4 Principle

For the purpose of this document, a material is considered as being non-combustible if its gross

calorific potential is assumed to be lower than 3,0 MJ/kg. In case of doubt ISO 1716 is used to

measure the calorific potential.
Examples of non-combustible materials are:
– uncoated stainless steel,
– steel with metallic coating,
– uncoat
