This European Standard specifies methods for measuring the end-to-end transit time of domestic and cross-border Single Piece Priority Mail (SPPM), collected, processed and delivered by postal service operators. It considers methods using representative end-to-end samples for all types of single piece priority mail services for addressed mail with defined transit-time service levels offered to the customer. This standard is applicable to the measurement of End-to-End priority mail services.
The standardized QoS-measurement method provides a uniform way for measuring the end-to-end transit time of postal items. Using a standardized measurement method will assure that the measurement will be done in an objective and equal way for all operators in accordance with the requirements of the Postal Directive 97/67/EC and its amendments.
This European Standard is mandatory and mainly used for performance measurement connected to requirements of the Universal Postal Service; domestic and international (UNEX).

This document specifies a method using a barcoding system for tracing potential isolated defects that can be present in the following kinds of coated or uncoated steel flat products, for example:
-   electro-galvanised surface
-   galvanised surface
-   galvannealed surface
-   cold rolled surface
This method, named “quality tracking”, aims at transferring additional material information to the steel users, especially the location of some isolated defects, in a reliable way. This method enables the manufacturer or purchaser to eliminate blanks or coils containing defects.
The method uses a 1D barcode to identify each section of steel strip.
NOTE 1   The stakeholders most involved in this technique are suppliers of steel flat products, car makers, appliance makers, part manufacturers, blanking line builders, steel processors, service centres, etc. All stakeholders can benefit from this project since defects can be traced, and, therefore, the steel containing defects can be eliminated or set apart of the production line.
NOTE 2   In the first stages of development, this method was called "defect tracking" (see [1]) and has been changed into "quality tracking" at the beginning of the standardization process.    
NOTE 3   Quality tracking can be applied to other types of coated or uncoated steel flat products such as pickled and oiled, organic coated, and steels for packaging. Quality tracking can be applied for coiled materials for which the technology of quality tracking is applicable.
NOTE 4   If quality tracking data are used outside of the purpose of quality tracking, it is under the responsibility of the user.
NOTE 5   Quality tracking can be applied to other materials than steel.
NOTE 6   The way to collect the information to be transferred to the user is out of the scope of this document.

EN-IEC 62941 is applicable to organizations manufacturing photovoltaic (PV) modulescertified to IEC 61215 series and IEC 62108 for design qualification and type approval andIEC 61730 for safety qualification and type approval. The design qualification and typeapproval of PV modules depend on appropriate methods for product and process design, aswell as appropriate control of materials and processes used to manufacture the product. Thisdocument lays out best practices for product design, manufacturing processes, and selectionand control of materials used in the manufacture of PV modules that have met therequirements of IEC 61215 series, IEC 61730, or IEC 62108. These standards also form thebasis for factory audit criteria of such sites by various certifying and auditory bodies.The object of this document is to provide a framework for the improved confidence in theongoing consistency of performance and reliability of certified PV modules. The requirementsof this document are defined with the assumption that the quality management system of theorganization has already fulfilled the requirements of ISO 9001 or equivalent qualitymanagement system. This document is not intended to replace or remove any requirements ofISO9001 or equivalent quality management system. By maintaining a manufacturing system inaccordance with this document, PV modules are expected to maintain their performance asdetermined from the test sequences in IEC 61215 series, IEC 62108, or IEC 61730.This document is applicable to all PV modules independent of design and technology, i.e. flatpanel, concentrator photovoltaic (CPV). Quality controls for CPV and nonconventional flatplatemanufacturing will differ somewhat from those of more conventional designs; thisdocument has not considered these differences.

This Technical Report defines statistics, terms and quality criteria for Web archiving. It considers the
needs and practices across a wide range of organisations such as libraries, archives, museums, research
centres and heritage foundations. The examples mentioned are taken from the library sector, because
libraries, especially national libraries, have taken up the new task of Web archiving in the context of
legal deposit. This should in no way be taken to undermine the important contributions of institutions
which are not libraries. Neither does it reduce the principal applicability of this Technical Report for
heritage institutions and archiving professionals.
This Technical Report is intended for professionals directly involved in Web archiving, often in mixed
teams consisting of library or archive curators, engineers and managerial staff. It is also useful for Web
archiving institutions’ funding authorities and external stakeholders. The terminology used in this
Technical Report attempts to reflect the wide range of interests and expertise of the audiences, striking
a balance between computer science, management and librarianship.
This Technical Report does not consider the management of academic and commercial electronic
resources, such as e-journals, e-newspapers or e-books, which are usually stored and processed
separately using different management systems. They are regarded as Internet resources and are not
addressed in this Technical Report as distinct streams of content of Web archives. Some organisations
also collect electronic documents, which may be delivered through the Web, through publisher-based
electronic deposits and repository systems. These too are out of scope for this Technical Report. The
principles and techniques used for this kind of collecting are indeed very different from those of Web
archiving; statistics and quality indicators relevant for one kind of method are not necessarily relevant
for the other.
Finally, this Technical Report essentially focuses on Web archiving principles and methods, and does
not encompass alternative ways of collecting Internet resources. As a matter of fact, some Internet
resources, especially those that are not distributed on the Web (e.g. newsletters distributed as e-mails)
are not harvested by Web archiving techniques and are collected by other means that are not described
nor analysed in this Technical Report.

In the current competitive world, Quality of Service (QoS) is becoming, jointly with cost, a key indicator in selling and
buying telecommunications services. At the same time, technology and liberalization trends are raising new types of
concerns unknown with the Plain Old Telephony Services (POTS) using switched connections provided by a single
monopoly supplier.
Nowadays, there are several standards describing QoS measurements but the questions of which indicators are to be
monitored and which values they should meet are still open. The present document proposes a methodology for the
identification of indicators relevant to the users that can be used either to monitor the QoS of Telecom services used by
the private customers or for a Service Level Agreement (SLA) between a business customer and a supplier of
Telecommunications services such as that proposed in ETSI EG 202 009-3 [i.22]. This part 3 gives guidelines on how
to express explicit user's QoS requirements, prioritize the indicators, establish a preferred value for each of these
indicators, while ETSI EG 202 009-2 [i.21] proposes QoS indicators for each service and each step of the Customer
Relationship Course.
The present document was written to make available to the providers and users of any kind of telecom services (legacy
network based or IP network based services) a common basis for mutual understanding about quality of service. It aims
to assist users in identifying rationally their QoS requirements in terms of Service Level Objectives (SLO), helping the
providers to better meet them for their mutual benefit.

The present document provides guidelines for the user experience of real-time communication services. The services include person-to-person (two-way) communication and person-to-machine (one-way) communication. The present document is revised from EG 202 534 [i.11] that was restricted to person-to-person communication services. The revision adds new guidelines that have been requested by stakeholders and omits some of the previous guidelines that are no longer considered relevant. The guidelines are based on empirical data about user experience. Most of the data is obtained from scientific papers. A minority of guidelines are based on existing standardisation documents to ensure that relevant normative and informative standards material is clear amongst results available from journal articles, conference papers, research reports, etc. The present document does not replace any existing standards. Most of the guidelines derived from scientific papers are specific to a particular context, in that the original user tests were for specific tasks, users and technical parameters and therefore the results may not be generalisable. Although the guidelines provide information about the main user experience measure(s) and technical parameter(s) of a particular test result, it is beyond the scope of the present document to provide all of the variables concerned with each user test. However, the origin of each empirical source of a guideline is shown and listed in the References.

This part of IEC 61193 applies to the inspection of electronic components, packages, and also modules (referred to as "products" in this standard) for use in electronic and electric equipment. It specifies sampling plans for inspection by attributes on the assumption that the acceptance number is zero (Ac = 0), including criteria for sample selection and procedures. The zero acceptance number sampling plans provided by this standard apply to the inspection of products, that are manufactured under suitable process control with the target of a "zerodefect" quality level before sampling inspection. In addition, this standard provides a method for the calculation of the expected value of the statistical verified quality limit (SVQL) at a confidence level of 60 %. Amongst other things, this method can be used to verify the effectiveness of the supplier's process control.

This Technical Report is concerned with  QoS as it applies to interactions between  components of distributed healthcare IT  systems. The scope is not limited to  network infrastructures; it includes the QoS  requirements of information storage and  processing IT systems. The related areas of  security and financial cost considerations  are not within the primary scope of the  document, although they are considered  briefly. Of course, an informatics system  with a high QoS does not guarantee a high  standard of healthcare in terms of clinical  outcomes or patient care. The quality of  healthcare delivered to patients (the  ultimate "users") depends upon a number of  external factors such as the experience and  competence of the healthcare  professional(s) or institution(s) involved.  Potential QoS characteristics for the total  healthcare delivery process such as  mortality rate, clinical outcome, etc. are  therefore not within the scope of this report.  The report contains no provisions to avoid  the incorporation of bad or dangerous  practice into healthcare IT systems. It is  possible to circumvent good clinical  practice with technical solutions which may  cause bad practice. This vital issue is not  covered by this report. To take an example  scenario: A patient consults a doctor, who  takes a blood sample and arranges to see  the patient again in two weeks. a) A "good"  practice doctor sees and reviews the blood  test result as soon as it comes back from  the laboratory and then files it if no action is  required. b) A "bad" practice doctor sees  and reviews the blood test results only  when he reviews the patient's case on the  patient's next visit. This case is not  defensible if the patient has a preventable  adverse event and takes legal action  (source: MPS Casebook Summer 1997).  The healthcare information system put into  the medical practice in electronic form  could build-in either practice (a) or practice  (b). This report does not consider the  clinical quality assurance mechanism for  the IT system.
