Regarding fire resistance, should only standard NBN 713-020 Add.3 be taken into account?

Or is e.g. standard DIN 4102-12 equivalent?

According to the new article 104 of the Belgian regulation RGIE/AREI, vital circuits should comply with the fire resistant characteristic "FR2 or equivalent".

Hence, when it comes to cables, many questions arose on the equivalence of the Belgian standard NBN 713-020 Add. 3 and for instance the standard DIN 4102-12.

Cablebel, the Belgian platform of the cable manufacturers, recently published its position on the matter.
