Section 12 - London Underground Fire Safety
Following the Kings Cross fire on the London Underground in 1987, the Fire Precautions (Sub-Surface Railway Stations) Regulations 1989, also known as Section 12 regulations were introduced. Many people were affected by the smoke and toxic fumes during the fire and Section 12 regulations stipulate that electrical equipment must adhere to strict afety standards. Electrical cable in Section 12 locations must meet the requirements of LUL standard 1-085 which details the fire safety performance of materials. Section 3.3.3 of the Standard lists the flammability, flame spread and smoke emission requirements for cable.
