MICC Fire Survival Cables Standards & Approvals
We take pride in our global high-quality standards and approvals.
MICC’s MI Fire Survival Wiring Cables are manufactured, tested and LPCB approved to BS EN 60702-1.
The LPCB certificate makes reference to the following standards:
BS EN 60702-1: 2002 – Mineral Insulated Cable with a rated voltage not exceeding 750V
BS 6387: 2013 – Performance requirements for cables required to maintain circuit integrity under fire conditions
BS 5839-1: 2002 + A2: 2008 – Fire detection and alarm systems for buildings. Code of practice for system design, installation, commissioning and maintenance.
MICC terminations are tested in accordance with BS EN 60702-2
Quality systems Assessed to ISO 9001
MICC cable drums, reels and termination packaging are marked with the CE Mark as required, except for terminations primarily intended for installation in potentially explosive atmospheres which are not marked because the low voltage directive does not apply.
