BASEC Announces Low and Medium Voltage Cable Testing


The British Approvals Service for Cables (BASEC) has announced it will now provide low and medium voltage cable testing to all International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) cable standards.

Dr Jeremy Hodge, chief executive at BASEC said: “As our service has become recognised in more territories, we have experienced an increase in the demand for testing to IEC cable standards and therefore we have expanded our cable testing scope to include all low and medium voltage IEC cable standards where previously this was limited to a few key types.

“Our message to cable buyers is always specify a recognised standard and an independently approved cable, check the cable markings on delivery and before installation to ensure it meets the criteria for its intended use.  If suspicious cable is found, contact BASEC or your local regulatory authority for advice,” concluded Jeremy.
