C22.2 No. 282-17 Plugs, receptacles, and couplers for electric vehicles.
56.1 Company name, catalog designation, electrical rating
56.1.1 A device shall be legibly and permanently marked, where readily visible after installation, with:
a) The manufacturer’s name, trade name, or trademark or other descriptive marking by which
the organization responsible for the device is able to be identified. The manufacturer’s
identification is permitted to be in a traceable code if the device is identified by the brand or
trademark owned by a private labeler;
b) The catalog number or an equivalent designation, where practicable. If the product is too small, or where legibility would be difficult to attain to include the complete catalog designation or an equivalent designation, or where several catalog numbers use common parts, the complete designation shall appear on the unit container;
c) The electrical rating in both volts and amperes;
d) In Canada and the US, the horsepower rating and associated electrical rating (such as voltage and no. of phases), if so rated.
In Mexico, kW rating shall be marked;
e) Whether ac or dc or both, see 56.5.
In Mexico, the symbols or ″c.a.″ for AC, the symbol or ″c.d.″ for DC, or both, as applicable, shall be used. In Canada and the US, the additional use of symbols is optional;
f) For devices incorporating either fuses or circuit breakers, the interrupting rating in amperes;
g) Ambient temperature rating, if higher than 40°C (104°F);
h) If intended for a specific location, the type of location in which the device is intended to be used; and
i) For EV breakaway couplings, the separation force rating.
56.1.2 Unless a device is provided with a specific cable, the device shall be marked with the intended cable types, conductor size or sizes, total number of conductors, and the overall cord diameter. The marking may appear on the smallest unit shipping carton, on an instruction sheet provided in the carton, or on the device. 56.1.3 In Mexico and the US, if the device is rated 100 A or less and is intended for use with conductors having 75°C (167°F) insulation, the device shall be marked with the temperature rating of the insulation. No marking is required if the device is furnished with a specific cable. In Canada, if the device is rated 100 A or less and designed for use with conductors having other than 60°C (140°F) insulation, the device shall be marked with the temperature rating of the insulation. No marking is required if the device is furnished with a specific cable. 56.1.4 If a device is intended for use with conductors having a temperature rating higher than 60°C (140°F) but is intended to be used based on 60°C (140°F) ampacities, the minimum conductor size shall be indicated on the device and on the smallest unit shipping carton, or on an instruction sheet provided in the carton. No marking is required if the device is furnished with a specific cable. 56.1 .5 A marking that is required to be permanent shall be molded, die-stamped, paint-stenciled, stamped, or etched metal that is permanently secured, or indelibly stamped lettering on a pressure-sensitive label that complies with the requirements in Annex A, Ref. No. 29. Expected usage, handling, storage, and the like, of a product shall be considered in the determination of the permanence of marking. 56.1.6 In Mexico and the US, in addition to complying with the requirement in 56.1.5, a hang tag shall also meet the requirements in 53.1 – 53.5. In Canada, this requirements does not apply.
