    sentence structure

    XLPE-insulated cables shall incorporate a metallic, radial moisture barrier, unless a ‘wet design’ cable is specifically requested by the purchaser, and insulation electric stress limits are reduced in compliance with 1.7 and 2.3.2.

    Is this sentence this way:

    XLPE-insulated cables shall incorporate a metallic, radial moisture barrier, (unless a ‘wet design’ cable is specifically requested by the purchaser, and insulation electric stress limits are reduced in compliance with 1.7 and 2.3.2).

    or this way:
    (XLPE-insulated cables shall incorporate a metallic, radial moisture barrier, unless a ‘wet design’ cable is specifically requested by the purchaser, )(and insulation electric stress limits are reduced in compliance with 1.7 and 2.3.2.)

    That's the way I read it.
