BS 6231

BS 6231 is a British Standard last updated in 2006 by the BSI Group (a leading global provider of standards, management systems, business improvement and regulatory approval information).

This standard specifies the performance and construction requirements of electrical cables that are single core, non-sheathed, PVC-insulated and of rated voltage 600/1000 V.

Although many use the name BS 6231 when referring generally to tri-rated cable, this is an erroneous statement, not only because tri-rated cable is approved to two standards other than this one, but also because other electrical cables meet the requirements of this British Standard.
