Electric cables — 

PVC

insulated,

non-armoured cables 

for voltages up to and 

including 450/750 V, for 

electric power, lighting 

and internal wiring

Scope 

This British Standard specifies requirements for the construction, dimensions and mechanical and  electrical properties of non-armoured polyvinyl chloride(PVC) insulated cables for operation at voltages up to and including450Va.c. to earth and750Va.c. between conductors, intended for electric power, lighting and internal wiring. 

The types of cable included in the standard are:
