This Standard defines terms related to functions, products, properties and other terms as well as symbols applying to geosynthetics. Definitions of terms not included in this standard may be found in the appropriate test methods standards.
Note: ISO/TC 221 decided to split the content of the standard in two parts.

The intent of ISO 10318-2:2015 is to define property symbols, graphical symbols, and pictograms used in EN and ISO geosynthetics standards. Definitions of particular or specific symbols and pictograms terms not included in this this part of ISO 10318 can be found in the International Standards describing appropriate test methods.

This international standard provides generic rules for the representation of states of objects
by graphical symbols standardized in IEC 60617, ISO 14617, IEC 60417, for example, and for
future graphical symbols included in these standards.
NOTE 1 Graphical symbols in IEC 60617, ISO 14617 and IEC 60417 are mostly presented with a single graphic,
not representing the different operational states of objects occurring during their life cycle, e.g. in operation, of the
object that the graphical symbol represents.
NOTE 2 The graphical symbols in IEC 60617 and ISO 14617 are – at the time of writing of the first edition of this
standard – generally shown in the operational state “not energized”.
NOTE 3 Within the different periods of an object within its life cycle, i.e. design, manufacturing, operation,
disposal, each period counts with different states. However, this standard focuses only on those states occurring
during the active operation period from an object put into service until it is taken out of service.
This horizontal standard has the purpose of:
• ensuring the coherence of the corpus of standardization documents;
• avoiding duplication of work and contradictory requirements.
The standard provides operational states of an object as examples that typically occur and
which need to be represented by standardized graphical symbols and defines generic rules to
be applied. It specifies which types of presentation facilities are recommended to present the
different operational states to humans.
States concerning the different types of alarm, their classification and management are not
dealt with in this standard.
This standard does neither define rules for the design of static graphical symbols for
diagrams as provided in IEC 61082 and the ISO/IEC 81714 series nor for icons and graphical
symbols for use on equipment as provided in IEC 60417, ISO 7000 and in the ISO/IEC
11581 series.
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 content of this horizontal
standard will not apply unless specifically referred to or included in the relevant publications.

IEC 80416-1:2008 provides basic principles and guidelines for the creation of graphical symbols for registration, and provides the key principles and rules for the preparation of title, description and note(s). This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2001. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - a) Clause 8 in the previous edition is moved to Clause 4; - b) Mandatory requirement for the line width in symbol originals is changed to 2 mm or 4 mm (see 6th paragraph of 7.3); - c) For negation of a graphical symbol, a single diagonal bar is allowed in addition to two diagonal bars at right angles; - d) A new meaning of negation 'do not' is allowed; - e) Some freedom is given for use of the basic pattern such as for symbol originals to be within the 75 mm square instead of the octagon; - f) Annex A (normative) is newly introduced for provisions on title, description and notes; - g) The nature of notes is changed to be purely informative; and - h) Clause 10 in the previous edition is moved to Annex C (informative). It has the status of a horizontal standard in accordance with IEC Guide 108. This International Standard has been prepared in co-operation with ISO/TC145/SC 3. It is published as a double logo standard.

ISO/IEC Guide 74:2004 gives procedures for the development of graphical symbols for public information, use in safety signs and product safety labels, and use on equipment and products. Such graphical symbols can be included in consumer documentation. ISO/IEC Guide 74:2004 does not cover road traffic signs and graphical symbols for use in technical documentation. Rules for the design of graphical symbols are given in International Standards. ISO/IEC Guide 74:2004 brings together information on relevant international reference documents and standards to assist technical committees and designers to follow best practice when considering the need for a new graphical symbol. IMPORTANT -- The colours represented in the electronic file of ISO/IEC Guide 74:2004 can be neither viewed on screen nor printed as true representations. Although the copies of ISO/IEC Guide 74:2004 printed by ISO have been produced to correspond (with an acceptable tolerance as judged by the naked eye) to the requirements of ISO 3864-1, it is not intended that these printed copies be used for colour matching. Instead, consult ISO 3864-1 which provides colorimetric and photometric properties together with, as a guideline, references from colour order systems.
