cables with two to five cores, fill the spaces between the cores. Where a tape of suitable material
is applied around the core assembly (see NOTE 2 to this requirement shall not apply,
provided that the finished cables shall not have any substantial cavity in the outer interstices
between the cores.

The colour of sheath is not specified.

NOTE If black is used, the requirement in EN 50363-2-1 for EM 6 to have a minimum level of carbon
black will apply.  Marking
The cable shall be marked with the CENELEC code H07BB-F. The marking shall comply with Clause 6 of
