Makes some interesting reading! They're kept very general though. The Austrian regs. are a folder, A4, about 10cm thick.

Short and sweet. Some times I wish the NEC was more like that!

That's all very nice and very interesting for someone that cannot understand Swedish - but it must have cost a lot of money and I am forced to ask the question ...

Why?

@ Hutch

I could argue that there was much international interest in it etc. [Linked Image] In reality, it is another consequence of the Englishification of Sweden: Very much in business is now bilingual or monolingual in English.

Those regs. are certainly short and sweet, that's for sure.

They'll make for some quiet bedtime reading tonight -- Thanks!

Having read this last night, it seems to me that the main focus is on the clearance distance to overhead lines.

Other than the provision of RCD protection, there seems to be little else which is in any way specific.
