||This standard (effective 1 Jan. 1987) is intended to prevent fires and explosions caused by electrostatic sparks in industrial processes and equipment in all sectors of the USSR economy. The standard is not applicable to explosives. It is fully equivalent to CMEA standard ST SEV 5037-85. It requires that all processes and equipment maintain conditions that prevent the build-up of static electricity, and that tests be made to determine the tendency of processes and equipment to acquire an electrostatic charge; the ability of the environment of a process or machine to be ignited by a spark must also be determined. Quantities to be measured are specified, and 3 classes of spark safety are defined.
