International standards

IEC 62305-1:2010 : Protection against lightning – Part 1: General principles

IEC 62305-1:2010 provides general principles to be followed for protection of structures against lightning, including their installations and contents, as well as persons.

IEC 62305-2:2010 : Protection against lightning – Part 2: Risk management

IEC 62305-2:2010 is applicable to risk assessment for a structure due to lightning flashes to earth. Its purpose is to provide a procedure for the evaluation of such a risk.

IEC 62305-3:2010 : Protection against lightning – Part 3: Physical damage to structures and life hazard

IEC 62305-3:2010 provides the requirements for protection of a structure against physical damage by means of a lightning protection system (LPS), and for protection against injury to living beings due to touch and step voltages in the vicinity of an LPS.

IEC 62305-4:2010 : Protection against lightning – Part 4: Electrical and electronic systems within structures

IEC 62305-4:2010 provides information for the design, installation, inspection, maintenance and testing of electrical and electronic system protection (SPM) to reduce the risk of permanent failures due to lightning electromagnetic impulse (LEMP) within a structure.
