The IP Code, International Protection Marking, IEC standard 60529, sometimes interpreted as Ingress Protection Marking, classifies and rates the degree of protection provided by mechanical casings and electrical enclosures against intrusion, dust, accidental contact, and water.
For IEC member countries, standard IEC 60529 classifies the ingress protection rating (IP Codes) of enclosures.

In the US, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association defines NEMA enclosure types in NEMA standard number 250.
NEMA enclosure ratings are similar to IEC IP Codes and can offer the same protections, but cannot be mapped directly.

EN 62262

EN 50102IEC 62262IK code
Before the advent of the IK code, a third numeral had been occasionally added to the closely related IP Code on ingress protection, to indicate the level of impact protection — e.g. IP66(9).

Electrical equipment in hazardous areas

Ratings between the two standards are not directly equivalent: NEMA ratings also require additional product features and tests (such as functionality under icing conditions, enclosures for hazardous areas, knock-outs for cable connections and others) not addressed by IP ratings.
The NEMA enclosure rating or IP code may also be indicated, but it is usually independent of the Classified Area suitability.
