    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Is applicable to flexible insulating covers (line hoses) for the protection of workers from accidental contact with live or earthed electrical conductors and for the avoidance of short circuits during live working. This consolidated version consists of the first edition (2001) and its amendment 1 (2002). Therefore, no need to order amendment in addition to this publication.
