This part of IEC 1346 establishes general principles for describing the structure of information about systems and of the systems themselves.
Based on these principles, rules and guidance are given for the formulation of unambiguous reference designations for objects in any system.
The reference designation identifies objects for the purpose of correlating information about an object among different kinds of documents and the products implementing the system. For manufacturing, installation and maintenance purposes, the reference designation or part of it may also be shown on or near the physical part corresponding to the object.
The principles laid down are general and are intended to be applicable to all technical areas. They can be used for systems based on different technologies or for systems combining several technologies.
