EN 50123-1.
6.2 Materials

No materials containing asbestos shall be used in the construction of the switchgear.

NOTE Special attention should be paid to the ability of the material used to resist moisture and fire: materials used

should be of the self extinguishing type, so that the risk of propagation of fire is minimised (see Annex B of

EN 50123-1).
6.3 Arcing contacts

Arcing contacts, if any, which are liable to be consumed during arc interruption shall be easy to

replace.
6.4 Clearances and creepage distances

Clearances and creepage distances shall not be lower than those indicated in EN 50123-1,

Table 1 and Annex D respectively.

NOTE Clearances and creepage distances may be increased to take into account the presence of foreign substances

after the number of operations, in normal and short-circuit conditions, occurring during the normal life-span between

cleaning procedures.
