European foreword
This document (prEN 15016-2:2022) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 256 “Railway
applications”, the secretariat of which is held by DIN.
This document is currently submitted to the CEN Enquiry.
This document will supersede EN 15016-2:2004.
In comparison with the previous edition, the following technical modifications have been made:
The references to standards, the clause “Terms and definitions” have been updated. The clause “Symbols and
abbreviated terms” have been added. Microcopying has been deleted. In Table 3 “Entry rules” the case
“Software” has been added. In Table 2 “Data fields” and Annex A references to the Data Model of Part 4 have
been incorporated to show the relation between the data fields of the parts lists respectively the fields of the
title blocks of technical documents and the data fields for data exchange.
This document is part of the standard series “Railway applications —” Technical documents” which consists of
the following parts:
— EN 15016-1: General principles;
— EN 15016-2: Parts lists;
— EN 15016-3: Handling of modifications of technical documents;
— EN 15016-4: Data exchange.

In railway business, the customer very often requires, as part of a contract, technical documents in a certain
form. In order to support co-operation and effective exchange of information between customers, suppliers and
partners, it is necessary to have the document requirements precisely defined.
This document refers to EN, ISO or IEC standards dealing with technical drawings. In cases where ISO or IEC
standards are not sufficiently precise, this standard gives specific details. These additions to ISO and IEC
standards facilitate the exploitation and the administration of the drawings.
These requirements have been drawn up in order to accommodate:
— the large variety of users;
— ease of transfer of documents;
— any specific series of documentation related to the railway material they define.
Special consideration has been given to those producing drawings by computer and their reproduction without
loss of quality.
NOTE The range of documents covers documents such as specifications, conditions for acceptance or further technical
specifications which cannot be graphically represented. This is meant to highlight the difference between “graphical
representation” and “verbal description”.

5 Characteristic features of parts lists
5.1 General
A parts list can be presented as follows:

be clearly indicated on the first sheet which and how many sheets form the entity.
All pages of the parts list should correspond with the specimen shown in Annex B.
Requirements for copying and scanning are to be defined.

5.5 Centring marks
Reference marks for centring required for the adjustment of the position of the parts list on the setting plane of
the photographic copying device, appear in the margin at the locations defined in Annex B.
5.6 Characteristics of lines and entries
5.6.1 Optical density
All lines and entries including those added during revision should have a contrast of at least 0,7 with respect to
base according to EN ISO 6428.
5.6.2 Line wideness of separate parts lists
Printed parts lists shall fulfil the same requirements as parts lists on drawings for scanning suitability. For
fulfilling these requirements, it is recommended to use line wideness according to Table 1.
Table 1 — Line widenesses
Borderlines 0,7
Main lines 0,35
Other lines 0,25

5.6.3 Characteristics of lettering
Separate parts lists shall be printed with lettering having height between 2,3 mm and 2,6 mm and a width of
2,5 mm to ensure scanning legibility. The line and character spacing shall be in accordance with ISO 4882.
Entries in parts list on drawings shall be in accordance with EN 15016-1.
6 Specification
6.1 Title block
A title block, intended for taking the necessary headings for identification and use, shall appear on all parts lists.
It is recommended to use the same title block format on all pages of the parts list. It is permissible to use a
reduced version on the pages following page 1; this block shall as a minimum have the same identification zone
as shown in Annex A.
The mandatory requirements of the title block are defined in Annex A.
6.2 Columns and lines
The parts list consists of eight columns for the entry of various data describing the items required for analysis
and interpretation of the drawing.
The columns are separated from each other by a continuous line of at least 0,35 mm wideness.
The layout of separate parts list is given in Annex B.
