I am going to assume that you are in Canada or Europe where this type of cable is widely used.
From what I can gather quickley from some web sites that this is an armoured power cable. Being that it is armoured, the armour is grounded therefore this will fall into a shielded.
I do not have acess to copies of their electrical codes to give you an answer. I suggest that you contact the AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) to get the proper information and to perform a safe installation.
