The Guidelines cover the requirements for thye design, manufacture, inspection and testing of elastomeric instrumentation, power and control cables for offshore installations. The Guidelines are complementary to BS 6883 

Cable voltage ratings covered include

150/250 V instrumentation pairs, triples and quads

600/1000 V insulation for single and multicores

1.9/3.3 kV insulation for single and multicores

3.8/6 kV insulation for single and multicores

6.35/11 kV insulation for single and multicores

8.7/15 kV insulation for single and multicores

Fire performance of these cables include minimum fume and toxicity under exposure to flame in a fire condition according to their performance type, all cables meet IEC 60332 Part 3 Category A test, in addition some cables are Fire resistant types meeting IEC 60331-11 (fire alone at 750oC).
