Wires and cable standards and specifications play a vital role in our industry. Our products are manufactured according to international, regional or national Standards as well as customer specific requirements.
Whatever type of standard is required, the use of standards ensures uniform engineering or technical criteria, safety criteria, methods, processes, practices and performances of our products.
Counterfeiting and sub-standard cables unfortunately are an issue for the wire and cable industry and ICF draws attention to the fact that sub-standard cable are potentially dangerous.
ICF however has no means of market surveillance but informs its membership about national or regional projects related to counterfeiting and sub-standard products.
