Cable Compliance

Regulatory and Legislative Requirements

 

In addition to the raft of national, international, and industry standards that a cable must meet, it must also comply with a number of legislative and regulatory requirements. They cover the full spectrum - from the base materials they are manufactured from to how they are handled when their useable lifecycle is completed, and everything else in between. The responsibility for compliance with these rules and regulations will depend on where in the supply chain you are but some of the ones we confirm and verify are detailed below:
