5.2 Material The outer layer shall comply with the requirements of R-CSP-90, R-CPE-90, V-90, V-90HT or TP-90, in accordance with AS/NZS 3808. Any inner layer shall be an insulating material selected from AS/NZS 3808 with a maximum continuous operating temperature of 90°C or higher. Where two layers are applied the compatibility test in Table 2 shall be carried out.
5.3 Thickness The average thickness of the covering or combined thickness of the two layers, determined by the method described in AS/NZS 1660.2.1, shall be not less than the thickness specified (t c ) in Table 1, and the minimum thickness at any point shall not fall below the specified thickness by more than 15 percent of the specified thickness plus 0.10 mm, i.e. minimum thickness = (0.85 t c − 0.10 mm) Where the covering is a combination of layers, the average thickness of the outer layer shall be not less than 1.0 mm.
6.1 Information to be marked Cables shall be marked with a registered name or registered mark, which enables the manufacturer or supplier of the cable to be identified.
6.2 Means of marking Marking shall be legible and durable and in accordance with either Items (a) or (b) as follows:

(b) Marking on a tape The marking shall consist of printing on a tape which is included throughout the length of the cable. The distance between the end of one block of marking and the beginning of the next shall not exceed 200 mm.
6.3 Marking of packaging Every packaging unit of cable shall have the following information indicated by means of an attached tag or label, or by marking directly on the unit:
(a) A registered name or registered mark which enables the manufacturer or supplier of the cable to be identified.
(b) The size of the conductor.
(c) Designation of outer covering.
(d) The catalogue number or type number or other marking distinguishing the cable.
(e) Length of cable in metres. NOTE: Manufacturers making a statement of compliance with this Australian/New Zealand Standard on a product, packaging, or promotional material related to that product are advised to ensure that such compliance is capable of being verified. 7 TESTS Cables shall comply with the tests specified in Table 2.
