    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Lays down requirements for the verification, by inspection and testing, of the compliance of the installation with the relevant requirements of other parts of IEC 60364. Criteria for testing are given and tests described.This part is concerned only with new installations; it is not concerned with the inspection and testing of existing installations. However, the criteria for inspection and the tests described may be applied, if thought appropriate, to existing installations.
