Although the scope is restricted to cables with rated voltage up to and including 0,6/1,0 kV, the procedure can be used, with the agreement of the manufacturer and the purchaser, for cables with rated voltage up to and including 1,8/3 (3,3) kV, provided that suitable fuses are used.
Annex A provides the method of verification of the burner and control system used for the test.
Requirements are stated for an identification that may optionally be marked on the cable to signify compliance with this standard.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2009. It constitutes a technical revision.
The significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows:
– extension of the scope with metallic data and telecom cables and optical fibre cables, although details for the specific point of failure, continuity checking arrangement, test sample, test procedure and test report relevant to metallicdata and telecom cables and optical fibre cables are not given by IEC 60331-2;
– improved description of the test environment;
– mandatory use of mass flow meters/controllers as the means of controlling accurately the input flow rates of fuel and air to the burner;
– improved figure illustrating method of mounting of the sample regarding bending radius;
– improved description of the information to be included in the test report.

IEC 60754-3:2018 specifies the apparatus and procedure for the measurement of the amount of halogens evolved during the combustion of materials taken from electric or optical fibre cable constructions.
The method specified in this document is intended for the measurement of the content of chlorine (Cl), bromine (Br), fluorine (F) and iodine (I), by using the analytical technique of ion chromatography for analysing an aqueous solution resulting from the gases evolved during the combustion.
The heating (combustion) procedure in this part of IEC 60754 is the same as in IEC 60754-2.
The method is intended for materials with an individual halogen content not exceeding 10 mg/g.
The method specified in this document is intended for the testing of individual components used in a cable construction. The use of this method will enable the verification of requirements which are stated in the appropriate cable specification for individual components of a cable construction.
For reasons of precision, this method is not recommended for detecting values of halogens less than 0,1 mg/g of the sample taken.

This document specifies the following requirements:
- the characteristics and state of the test installation and those parts of the procedure which are common to withstand tests and tests above the withstand level;
- the procedure for carrying out withstand lightning, switching impulse tests and superimposed impulse test;
- the procedure for carrying out tests above the withstand level which is intended for research purposes.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1966. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) the structure of the standard takes into account the current style of IEC standards;
b) this document is no longer a “Recommendation” but an “International Standard”;
c) the test installation is no longer related to gas-pressure and oil-filled cables only;

IEC 62893-1:2017(E) specifies construction, dimensions and test requirements for cables with extruded insulation and sheath having a voltage rating of up to and including 0,6/1 kV AC or up to and including 1 500 V DC for flexible applications under harsh conditions for the power supply between the electricity supply point of the charging station and the electric vehicle (EV).
The EV charging cable is intended to supply power and, if needed, communication (for details see the IEC 62196 series and IEC 61851-1) to an EV or plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV). The charging cables are applicable for charging modes 1 to 4 of IEC 61851-1. Ordinary duty cables with rated voltage 300/500 V are only permitted for charging mode 1 of IEC 61851-1. Maximum conductor temperature for the cables in this part of IEC 62893 is 90 ºC.
The particular types of cables are specified in IEC 62893-3 (modes 1 to 3 for AC charging) and in the future IEC 62893-4 (mode 4 for DC charging).
These parts are collectively referred to hereafter as “the particular specifications”.
The test methods specified are given in IEC 62893-2, IEC 60245-2, IEC 60332-1-2, IEC 62821-1:2015, Annex B, and in the relevant parts of IEC 60811, as listed in the normative references.

IEC 60287-3-1:2017 is available as IEC 60287-3-1:2017 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.
IEC 60287-3-1:2017 is applicable to the conditions of steady-state operation of cables at all voltages, buried directly in the ground, in ducts, troughs or in steel pipes, both with and without partial drying-out of the soil, as well as cables in air. The term "steady state" is intended to mean a continuous constant current (100 % load factor) just sufficient to produce asymptotically the maximum conductor temperature, the surrounding ambient conditions being assumed constant. This document defines site reference conditions, however the general values are superseded by specific national requirements. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- the updated list of national laying conditions is now covered in Annex A;
- Clause 5 about the information required from the purchaser for the selection of the appropriate type of cable has been removed.

IEC 62895:2017 specifies test methods and requirements for transmission power cable systems, cables with extruded insulation and their accessories for fixed land installations, for rated voltages up to and including 320 kV.
Within the scope of this standard “extruded insulation” means insulation manufactured by extrusion of either thermoplastic (e.g. polyethylene) or crosslinked (e.g. crosslinked polyethylene, ethylene propylene rubber, etc.) material. The insulation material may be either unfilled or filled (e.g. with mineral or carbon).
The requirements apply to single-core cables in combination with their accessories, outdoor and terminations for gas insulated systems, joints, and asymmetric joints for usual conditions of installation and operation, but not to special cables and their accessories, such as submarine cables, for which modifications to the standard tests may be necessary or special test conditions may need to be devised.

IEC 60287-2-3:2017 describes a method for calculating the continuous current rating factor for cables of all voltages installed in ventilated tunnels. The method is applicable to any type of cable.
The method applies to natural as well as forced ventilation.
Longitudinal heat transfer within the cables and the surroundings of the tunnel is assumed to be negligible.
All cables are assumed to be identical within the tunnel and it is assumed that the tunnel cross-section does not change with distance along the tunnel.
