Standardization of circuit integrity cable testing is beneficial to cable manufacturers, distributors, and users. Uniform procedures, consistent, repeatable results, and measurable test acceptance criteria are required to allow comparisons among competing products and to allow selection of the correct product for the application.

Standard for Testing Fire-Resistive, Circuit Integrity Cables and Cable Systems Using a Hydrocarbon Pool Fire Test Protocol
This standard provides cables and cable systems requirements and methods for performing circuit integrity tests on energized low voltage power, control, and instrumentation cables, cable glands and splices at temperatures and heat fluxes simulating a hydrocarbon pool fire.
