For long-term environmental test projects, laboratories should have measures to ensure that their power supply can maintain the standard test period; if the test activity may be interrupted due to power outage, the laboratory should have documented instructions for the test data and results as well as The conclusion of the test is reasonable.

The test work power supply for the laboratory should be powered independently of the individual circuits of the air conditioning and lighting power supply.

c) Climate Environment:

The laboratory environment should meet these requirements when the detection method or the testing equipment itself requires the work environment, or when the change of the environmental weather conditions will affect the accuracy of the test results. If there is no special requirement for the standard, the laboratory shall not allow testing outside the specified environmental conditions, and then calculate the test results under standard conditions.

The wet leakage current test requires the temperature of the solution to be controlled at 22°C±3°C. If the temperature of the solution does not have an independent temperature control system or measure, the laboratory should be able to control the relevant ambient temperature under the specified conditions to ensure the solution. The temperature meets the above requirements.

d) Outdoor venues:

The laboratory's outdoor test site conditions shall meet the site requirements and test conditions specified in the standard. The test site should have sufficient light and effectively control the factors that will affect the test results. Site grounds should normally be avoided, including surrounding walls or trees that produce strong reflections that have an effect on the test results. The venue should be empty and flat.

Note: Factors influencing the test results include, but are not limited to, installation methods, irradiance, wind speed, ambient temperature, ambient temperature around the sample, reflected radiation from the ground and surrounding objects, and emission radiation.

5.3.3 In order to ensure that the test results are not affected by the environmental regions and to ensure the personal safety of workers and accidents, the laboratory should carry out environmental safety isolation and take protective measures:

a) The gas cylinder used for the burning test shall be stored separately and isolated from the open flame in the test area;

b) The salt spray test and corrosion gas test should be isolated from other test sites or have sufficient ventilation;

c) Areas with potential explosion or radiation hazards should have safe isolation measures and give striking warning signs;

d) In the UV irradiation test, the laboratory should be equipped with a dedicated UV irradiation test box, and the observation window of the test box should have the function of UV radiation shielding. The laboratory shall be equipped with UV protective glasses for the testing personnel, and provide training for related personnel on the safety protection of UV light radiation;
