UNE standards are released by AENOR, the Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification. As it is a member of ISO, IEC and CENELEC, many of its standards are set in conjunction with European and international conventions.
UNE 21123 refers to the design and cross-sectional area of cables used by utilities on power distribution circuits with a voltage rating of up to and including 600/1000V.


There are a number of sub-sections to UNE 21123 standard covering variations on the cable construction.

UNE 21123-1 PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) insulated and sheathed
