About this Standard:

This Standard specifies general requirements, additional to those required for basic electrical safety, for the selection of electrical equipment and instruments, and associated equipment, and for the electrical equipment’s installation and maintenance to ensure safe use in hazardous areas where flammable materials are generated, prepared, processed, handled, stored or otherwise used.

This Standard does not apply to those materials which are specifically manufactured as explosives, or to materials which are inherently explosive or pyrophoric. Explosive materials may require special considerations which are beyond the scope of this Standard.
