Scope of the individual Standards of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part II

The individual Standards of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part II, provide definitions and specify construction, marking, and test requirements for a single class or closely allied group of electrical equipment.

Objective of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part II

The objective of Standards issued as part of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part II, is to give consideration to the prevention of injury to persons and damage to property through proper design, good construction, and high quality of work. These safety Standards are intended to provide requirements for the design and construction of electrical equipment, primarily to address fire and electrical shock hazards and for use throughout Canada in conformity with the rules of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I.

Terminology

In CSA standards, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (nonmandatory) to define their application.
