This part is intended for all parties involved in the preparation of instructions for use, for example:

Suppliers, technical writers, technical illustrators, software designers, translators or other people engaged in the work of conceiving and drafting such instructions for use;

The amount of documentation required, will depend on the nature of the product, its complexity and the skills of the intended users.
