Is there any guidance, best practice or standard when selecting cables dependant on the use of the circuit? As for example a Red cable will usually indicate a Fire system cicuit, a Yellow cable would indicate a 110v CTE construction supply.
I'm aware of the Table 2 in the IEC 60309 relating to plug and socket colours, but I'm sure I've seen some guidance in the past relating to cables also.
BS 1710 and NJUG Guidelines on the Positioning and Colour Coding of Underground Utilities' Apparatus.
Having said that, it may be possible to mark containment, conduits etc., or, for BS 1710, apply separate marking to an otherwise coloured sheath of a cable. Clients may have their own preferences in this respect.
