As the central approved repository for the oldest and one of the largest rapid mass transit railway systems in the world, the London Underground Approved Products Register (APR) provides a benchmark for subsurface rail products. Since the adoption of changes in response to London underground Section 12 Regulations 1989 on Fire Precautions (Sub-Surface Railway Stations), LUL's approved product list has become synonymous with commuter safety within the network's stations as well as in the carriages. As a result, the above LUL-approved cables are regularly specified for use by metro and underground networks around the world.
