Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Cable First class cable. Was pleased that it was available in a 25m drum. Didn't want to have to buy 100m

Answer: 
Good afternoon, The current carrying capacities given in our data sheet are taken from the Wiring Regulations. For the size 6mm² the conductor is made up of 7 strands. On 2.5mm² and 1.5mm² sizes the conductors are solid copper. I trust this answers your question.

Answer: 
As its a multicore cable its current carrying capacity is taken from table 4D2A of BS7671. What they have done is used the worst case scenario, i.e. an insulated wall. If you read the tables the current carrying capacity improves depending on the fixing method used.
Single core cables can be found on table 4D1A.
However it is also worth noting table 52.2 cables surrounded by thermal insulation material over a length of 0.5 mtrs or more shall have their current carrying capacity halved.
Basically, keep it away from insulation and keep it away from polystyrene too.
