Fire hazard testing - Part 7-3: Toxicity of fire effluent - Use and interpretation of test results


Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 60695-7-3:2011 concerns laboratory tests used to measure the toxic components of the fire effluent from either electrotechnical products or materials used in electrotechnical products. It provides guidance on the use and interpretation of results from such tests. It discusses currently available approaches to toxic hazard assessment consistent with the approach of ISO TC 92 SC 3, as set out in ISO 13344, ISO 13571, ISO 16312-1, ISO 16312-2, ISO 19701, ISO 19702 and ISO 19706. It also provides guidance on the use of toxic potency data in fire hazard assessment and on principles which underlie the use of combustibility and toxicological information in fire hazard assessment. The methods described are applicable to data concerning both the incapacitating effects and the lethal effects of fire effluents. This first edition cancels and replaces the second edition of IEC/TS 60695-7-3 published in 2004. It constitutes a technical revision and now has a status of an International Standard. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are listed below:
- change of designation from a Technical Specification to an International Standard;
- the Foreword, Introduction, and Clauses 1, 2 and 3 have been updated;
- expanded in all areas to further clarify the alignment with ISO/TC 92 Fire Safety and in particular with ISO 13344, ISO 13571, ISO/IEC 13943, ISO 16312-1, ISO 16312-2, ISO 19701, ISO 19702 and ISO 19706.
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60695-7-1:2010 and IEC 60695-7-2:2002.
