National foreword
This British Standard is the official English language version of EN 50288-6-1:2003. The UK participation in its preparation was entrusted by Technical Committee EPL/46, Cables, wires, waveguides, R.F. connectors, R.F. and microwave passive components and accessories, to Subcommittee EPL/46/1, Communication cables, which has the responsibility to: aid enquirers to understand the text; present to the responsible international/European committee any enquiries on the interpretation, or proposals for change, and keep the UK interests informed; monitor related international and European developments and promulgate them in the UK.

A list of organizations represented on this subcommittee can be obtained on request to its secretary. Cross-references The British Standards which implement international or European publications referred to in this document may be found in the BSI Catalogue under the section entitled International Standards Correspondence Index, or by using the Search facility of the BSI Electronic Catalogue or of British Standards Online. This publication does not purport to include all the necessary provisions of a contract. Users are responsible for its correct application. Compliance with a British Standard does not of itself confer immunity from legal obligations.

This British Standard was published under the authority of the Standards Policy and Strategy Committee on 2 February 2004
