IEC 60544-5:2022 is available as IEC 60544-5:2022 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.

IEC 60544-5:2022 covers ageing assessment methods which can be applied to components based on polymeric materials (e.g. cable insulation and jackets, elastomeric seals, polymeric coatings, gaiters) which are used in environments where they are exposed to radiation. The object of this document is aimed at providing methods for the assessment of ageing in service. The approaches discussed in Clause 5 through Clause 9 cover ageing assessment programmes based on condition monitoring (CM), the use of sample deposits in severe environments and sampling of real-time aged components. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- added recent references in 7.4 showing that some electrical condition monitoring methods show promising correlations with ageing;
- updated recommendations for implementation of a sample deposit in 9.2, installation of a sample deposit in 9.3 and testing of samples from the deposit in 9.4;
- updated list of references.
