|ICS Code (Graphical symbols for use on electrical and electronics engineering drawings, diagrams, charts and in relevant technical product documentation):||01.080.40|
This International Standard provides guidelines to ensure that graphical symbols for use on equipment in IEC product publications are consistent with the requirements of horizontal standard IEC 60417, and ISO 7000. This document is intended to be used by any technical committees and subcommittees to develop graphical symbols for use on equipment for inclusion in their product publications.
This document is based on and develops IEC Guide 108:2006, Clause 4.
For the creation of new graphical symbols for use on equipment, IEC 80416-1 and ISO 80416-2 are used. For the application of standardized graphical symbols for use on equipment, IEC 80416-3 and ISO 80416-4 are used.
This horizontal standard is primarily intended for use by technical committees in the preparation of standards in accordance with the principles laid down in IEC Guide 108.
One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of horizontal standards in the preparation of its publications. The contents of this horizontal standard will not apply unless specifically referred to or included in the relevant publications.
