Abstract

IEC 60695-1-11:2014 provides guidance for assessing the fire hazard of electrotechnical products and for the resulting development of fire hazard testing as related directly to harm to people, animals or property. It outlines a hazard-based process to identify appropriate fire test methods and performance criteria for products. The principles of the methodology are to identify fire events (fire scenarios) which will be associated with the product, to establish how the measurable fire properties of the product are related to the possible occurrence and outcome of those events, and to establish test methods and performance requirements for those properties which will either result in a tolerable fire outcome or eliminate the event altogether. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC 60695-1-11 published in 2010, and constitutes a technical revision. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are:
- updated references;
- updated terms and definitions;
- added Figure 5 - Description of range of products and circumstances of use;
- and updated Bibliography.
Key words: Fire Hazard, Fire Test Method, Assessment
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60695-1-10:2009.
