This is the third edition of CSA C22.2 No. 245, Marine shipboard cable. It supersedes the previous editions published in 2015 and 1995. It is one of a series of Standards issued by CSA Group under Part II of the Canadian Electrical Code.

This Standard was originally published as a harmonized Standard with Underwriters Laboratories Inc. It is now a non-harmonized CSA Group Standard.

This edition includes the following changes:

a) changes in the low smoke halogen free compliance which is now in Clause 5.3.10;

b) Clause 5.2.4 has been added to clarify the required production tests for cables above 2 kV;

c) in Clause 5.3.10, the halogen content is to be calculated for halogen free type only;

d) a note has been added in Table 5 to address the testing of cable jacket when the cables diameter is less than 16 AWG; and

e) various changes to the values in Table 7.


This Standard specifies the requirements for distribution (power), control, and signal cables, for use aboard marine vessels and fixed and floating offshore drilling or production platforms, that are

a) rated up to 35 kV (ac or dc, phase-to-phase) maximum;

b) in single or multi-conductor constructions;

c) with or without metal armour; and

d) with or without an overall jacket.

Cables rated up to 1 kV ac can be rated at 2.8 kV dc.

The installations described in Clause 1.1 are designed to be installed in accordance with Canadian Electrical Code (CE Code), Part I.

Note: Installation of cables is subject to requirements found in industry standards and local regulations.

In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

The values given in SI units are the units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.
