NEN1010 cables

Construction Projects in the Netherlands are required to meet Dutch national standards. For Low Voltage projects this includes compliance with NEN1010 Wiring Regulations (the equivalent to the British BS7671) the latest edition of which was printed and released in 2015.

NEN1010 covers electrical safety provisions for cables used in fixed installation within building, both residential, commercial and industrial, and so references the Construction Products Regulation (CPR). The Netherlands operate a risk-based assessment to determine the CPR requirements:

Region Low Risk/Minimum requirements Medium Risk High Risk Very High Risk
The Netherlands Eca Dca – s3, d2, a1 Cca – s1, d1, a1  B2ca – s1a, d1, a1

NEN1010 is concerned with preventing risk of injury from electric shock, electric arcs and short circuits, electromagnetic radiation and static electricity, along with the indirect risks associated with electrical installations such as fire. They must be considered in conjunction with NEN 3140 and the operation of electrical installations – low voltage.

A number of our NEN1010 standard cables also hold KEMA approval, a third-party independent accreditation widely recognised in the Benelux region.
