Note that this standard has been updated, and you will need to meet the requirements set out in AS/NZS IEC 60332.1.3:2017 Tests on Electric and Optical Fibre Cables under Fire Conditions: Test for Vertical Flame Propagation for a Single Insulated Wire or Cable - Procedure for Determination of Flaming Droplets/Particles.
You must comply with this standard if you are the operator of a Regulated Australian Vessel, or if you are the operator of a foreign vessel that is:
- in an Australian port
- entering or leaving an Australian port
- in the internal waters of Australia
- in the territorial sea of Australia, other than in the course of innocent passage.
The standard sets out the minimum requirements for electric cabling on board vessels, with emphasis on flame retardation.
