Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 1 March 2001
Status: active
Page Count: 18
ICS Code (IT terminal and other peripheral equipment): 35.180
ICS Code (Ergonomics): 13.180
scope:

This part of ISO 9241

- introduces the multipart standard on ergonomic requirements for the use of visual display terminals for office tasks;

- provides guidelines for a user-performance approach;

- gives an overview of all parts of ISO 9241 currently published and of the anticipated content of those in preparation;

- provides some guidance on how to use ISO 9241;

- describes how conformance to ISO 9241 should be reported.

For the purposes of ISO 9241, office tasks are taken to include a wide range of generic text and data processing tasks. Due to the similarity of these tasks to tasks performed in other environments, e.g. medical, scientific, telecommunications, control rooms and public access, many of the requirements in ISO 9241 are appropriate to these environments as well.

ISO 9241 does not cover electrical safety of VDTs. This is covered by IEC 950.

NOTE - The ergonomic requirements of flat panel displays are covered in ISO 13406-1 and ISO 13406-2. More extensive guidance on human-centred design for interactive systems is provided in ISO 13407.
