“BT have not ordered to withdraw ESE standards
ESE national standards are in force and this is in line with the CEN-CENELEC Internal Regulations”
Since 2009, the “lightning experts” are communicating by any available means that the ESE standards are in conflict with the IEC 62 305 serie. As a consequence, they should be removed, the ESE air terminals would then become illegal and Conventional LPS would be the unique acceptable system.
The CENELEC already answered extremely clearly in April 2010 to this question but the debate was still on, propagated by the so-called experts.
The CENELEC Director General had recently the opportunity to clarify the position of the European standard body while answering a question from Mr Farhad Rachidi (ICLP President). This answer (available hereunder) ends the biased debate definitely.
