IEC 60479-2:2019 describes the effects on the human body when a sinusoidal alternating current in the frequency range above 100 Hz passes through it.
The effects of current passing through the human body for:
– alternating sinusoidal current with DC components,
– alternating sinusoidal current with phase control, and
– alternating sinusoidal current with multicycle control
are given but are only deemed applicable for alternating current frequencies from 15 Hz up to 100 Hz.
Means of extending the frequency of applicability of pure sinusoids to a frequency of 150 kHz are given and means of examining random complex irregular waveforms are given.
This document describes the effects of current passing through the human body in the form of single and multiple successive unidirectional rectangular impulses, sinusoidal impulses and impulses resulting from capacitor discharges. The values specified are deemed to be applicable for impulse durations from 0,1 ms up to and including 10 ms.
This document only considers conducted current resulting from the direct application of a source of current to the body, as does IEC 60479-1. It does not consider current induced within the body caused by its exposure to an external electromagnetic field.

IEC 60364-7-717:2009 is applicable to mobile or transportable units. For the purposes of this standard, the term "unit" refers to a vehicle and/or mobile or transportable structure in which all or part of an electrical installation is contained. Units are either of the mobile type or of the transportable type. Examples are units for television and broadcasting, medical services, advertising, fire fighting, using special information technology, units for disaster relief, catering units and the like. The requirements of this standard also apply where two or more units are connected together to form a single electrical installation. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2001 and constitutes a technical revision. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows:
- The scope has been improved, providing more detail;
- The content of Clause 717.41 has been updated following the new edition of IEC 60364-4-41;
- Clauses concerning protection by automatic disconnection of the supply and additional protection have been introduced;
- All figures have been updated.

IEC 60364-4-43:2008 provides requirements for the protection of live conductors from the effects of overcurrents. IEC 60364-4-43:2008 describes how live conductors are protected by one or more devices for the automatic disconnection of the supply in the event of overload (Clause 433) and short-circuit (Clause 434) except in cases where the overcurrent is limited in accordance with Clause 436 or where the conditions described in 433.3 (omission of devices for protection against overload) or 434.3 (omission of devices for protection against short-circuit) are met. Coordination of overload protection and short-circuit protection is also covered (Clause 435). This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 2001, and constitutes a technical revision. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are:
- Introduction of new informative Annexes B, C and D.
- Information concerning flexible cables added to Scope.
- Requirements added for overload detection for the neutral conductor for harmonic currents.
- Requirement that devices for protection against short-circuit current be capable of making as well as breaking short-circuit current added.
- Information added to clarify protection against overload current.
- Requirements where devices for protection against overload need not be provided expanded.
- Requirements where devices for protection against short-circuit need not be provided expanded.
- Requirements for short-circuit current ratings of busbar trunking systems added. The contents of the corrigendum of October 2008 have been included in this copy.

This Technical Report provides touch voltage-duration combination thresholds based on analysis of information concerning body impedances and current thresholds of physiological effects, as given in IEC/TS 60479-1. Such threshold combinations relate to specific environmental and contact conditions that determine body impedance for particular current pathways. This technical report considers only (i) 50/60 Hz sinusoidal alternating voltage having no other frequency components and no significant direct voltage component, and (ii) direct voltage with no significant alternating component. This technical report provides thresholds as a result of calculations based on values from IEC/TS 60479-1, with uncertainties. Therefore thresholds proposed in this report also correspond to values with uncertainties. Touch voltage-duration combination thresholds are for use by technical committees as guidance for the determination of limits for touch voltage and touch voltage durations in various environmental situations. The contents of the corrigendum of July 2013 have been included in this copy.

Provides guidance on the use of conventional touch voltage limits with reference to thresholds given in IEC 60479-5. Consideration is given to different physiological effects, environmental conditions, contact conditions, etc. This specification only discusses voltages for sinusoidal a.c. at 50/60 Hz and pure d.c. having no significant a.c. component. This specification does not consider immersion of body parts or medical applications. Touch voltage limits are for use by technical committees as guidance for the determination of their own specific limits. This basic safety publication is primarily intended for use by technical committees in the preparation of standards in accordance with the principles laid down in IEC Guide 104 and ISO/IEC Guide 51. It is not intended for use by manufacturers or certification bodies One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of basic safety publications in the preparation of its publications. The requirements, test methods or test conditions of this basic safety publication will not apply unless specifically referred to or included in the relevant publications. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition which was issued as a technical report in 1992. It constitutes a technical revision and now has the status of a technical specification. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are listed below: - proposal of maximum contact areas for various conventional touch voltage limit; - introduction of different current pathways through the human body for the selection of conventional touch voltage limit; - introduction of conventional touch voltage limit corresponding to the startle reaction current threshold, the inability of let-go current threshold and the ventricular fibrillation current threshold; - possibility of interpolation on contact area for other conventional touch voltage limits. It has the status of a basic safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104 and ISO/IEC Guide 51.

The particular requirements specified in this part of IEC 60364 apply only to circuits intended to supply pleasure craft or houseboats in marinas and similar locations. The particular requirements do not apply to the supply of house boats if they are directly supplied from the public network. The particular requirements do not apply to the internal electrical installations of pleasure craft or house boats. For the remainder of the electrical installation of marinas and similar locations the general requirements of IEC 60364 together with the relevant particular requirements of IEC 60364-7 apply. This second edition of IEC 60364-7-709 cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 1994. It constitutes a technical revision. The major changes with regard to the previous edition concern: - the removal of the requirements for the electrical installation in pleasure craft as these are now covered by IEC 60092-507; - the requirements of this part have been aligned with those in other parts of IEC 60364.
