||This IEC report defines the conditions for the use of electrical apparatus in a room or a building in which there is a protective gaz at a pressure higher than that of the outside atmosphere (where flammable gases or vapours may be present). It includes recommendations for the construction, equipment and operation of rooms or buildings and recommendations for the necessary tests (protective-gas ducts, protective measures for electrical apparatus, values of overpessure and of protective-gas flow, verifications and tests, and marking).
