Cable Colour Code
When was the Cable Color Code for fixed wiring amended and what were the changes?
A new colour code for fixed wiring took effect on 1 Mar 2009. It adopts the European Union's standard whereby the cable color for the live phase are in brown, black and grey compared to the previous red, yellow and blue.
Were the power cables of electrical appliances affected by the change in the cable colour code?
No, the change in cable colour code does not apply to flexible power cords for electrical appliances.
Do high voltage cables need to be marked according to the amended cable colour code?
Yes. To avoid confusion, the new colour markings, i.e. L1, L2 and L3 shall be provided at the switchgear or cable compartment where new cables are terminated to differentiate the three line cables.
