ApplicationThis mandatory regulation applies only to fixed cables installed in a building. It does not apply to non-fixed e.g. patch cords including pre-terminated cables with plugs on either or both ends that can be disconnected e.g. MTP trunks and also blown fibre systems. However, in practice, most such cords will be manufactured using EuroClass cable and should have the information included on the spec sheet including reference to the DoP (declaration of performance). This enables the cable to be included when assessing the overall building for insurance and fire safety. Additionally, all external data cables are not included, however where a cable runs from outside to inside a building, a dual sheath could facilitate compliance without jointing the cable.
