701.512.2 External influences
Installed electrical equipment shall have at least the following degrees of protection:
(i) In zone 0: IPX7
(ii) In zones 1 and 2: IPX4.
This requirement does not apply to shaver supply units complying with BS EN 61558-2-5 installed in zone 2 and located where direct spray from showers is unlikely.
Electrical equipment exposed to water jets, e.g. for cleaning purposes, shall have a degree of protection of at least IPX5.

So yes it complies.

I have noted however it says 1, 2, and 3 and there is no zone 3.
