|| IEC 60364-1 ed5.0 withdrawn corrigendum
|| Low-voltage electrical installations - Part 1: Fundamental
principles, assessment of general characteristics, definitions
||Gives the rules for the design, erection, and verification of
electrical installations. The rules are intended to provide for the
safety of persons, livestock and property against dangers and damage
which may arise in the reasonable use of electrical installations
and to provide for the proper functioning of those installations.
IEC 60364-1 applies to the design, erection and verification of
electrical installations such as those of a) residential premises;
b) commercial premises; c) public premises; d) industrial premises;
e) agricultural and horticultural premises; f) prefabricated
buildings; g) caravans, caravan sites and similar sites; h)
construction sites, exhibitions, fairs and other installations for
temporary purposes; i) marinas; j) external lighting and similar
installations; k) medical locations; l) mobile or transportable
units; m) photovoltaic systems; n) low-voltage generating sets.
IEC 60364-1 covers
a) circuits supplied at nominal voltages up to and including 1 000 V
a.c. or 1 500 V d.c.;
b) circuits, other than the internal wiring of apparatus, operating
at voltages exceeding 1 000 V and derived from an installation
having a voltage not exceeding 1 000 V a.c., for example, discharge
lighting, electrostatic precipitators;
c) wiring systems and cables not specifically covered by the
standards for appliances;
d) all consumer installations external to buildings;
e) fixed wiring for information and communication technology,
signalling, control and the like (excluding internal wiring of
f) the extension or alteration of the installation and also parts of
the existing installation affected by the extension or alteration.
