FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61500 has been prepared by subcommittee 45A: Instrumentation,

control and electrical power systems of nuclear facilities, of IEC technical committee 45:

Nuclear instrumentation.

INTRODUCTION
a) Technical background, main issues and organization of the standard

The equipment for data communication of on-line plant data can simplify the hardwired cables

connecting distributed systems for instrumentation, control, protection and monitoring needed

for the safe operation of Nuclear Power Plants (NPP). Such communication systems can have

advantages over direct cables, for electrical isolation, for reduction of cable fire loads or other

reasons. In a distributed computer based system, communication equipment is an essential

part of the system. Data communication is usually essential for implementing I&C systems

important to safety in nuclear power plants.

It is intended that the document be used by operators of NPPs (utilities), manufacturers of

data communication equipment, systems evaluators and by licensors.

b) Situation of the current standard in the structure of the IEC SC 45A standard series

IEC 61500 is the third level IEC SC 45A document tackling the generic issue of data

communication for equipment performing category A functions.

IEC 61500 is to be read in association with IEC 61513, which is the appropriate IEC SC 45A

document providing guidance on general requirements for instrumentation and control

systems important to safety, IEC 60880, which is the appropriate IEC SC 45A document

providing guidance on software aspects for computer based systems performing category A

functions, and IEC 60987 which is the appropriate IEC SC 45A document providing guidance

on hardware aspects for computer based systems.

For more details on the structure of the IEC SC 45A standard series, see item d) of this

introduction.
c) Recommendations and limitations regarding the application of the standard

It is important to note that this standard establishes no additional functional requirements for

safety systems.

Aspects for which special recommendations have been provided in this standard are:

• Requirements for data communication within systems performing category A functions.

• Requirements for data communication between divisions of a system performing
category A functions.

• Requirements for data communication of systems performing category A functions with

systems of lower safety importance.
• Reliability requirements for data communication.

To ensure that the standard will continue to be relevant in future years, emphasis is placed on

principles, rather than on specific technologies.

d) Description of the structure of the IEC SC 45A standard series and relationships

with other IEC documents and other bodies documents (IAEA, ISO)

The top-level documents of the IEC SC 45A standard series are IEC 61513 and IEC 63046.

IEC 61513 provides general requirements for I&C systems and equipment that are used to

perform functions important to safety in NPP. IEC 63046 provides general requirements for

electrical power systems of NPP; it covers power supply systems including the supply

systems of the I&C systems. IEC 61513 and IEC 63046 are to be considered in conjunction

and at the same level. IEC 61513 and IEC 63046 structure the IEC SC 45A standard series

and shape a complete framework establishing general requirements for instrumentation,

control and electrical systems for nuclear power plants.
---------------------- Page: 11 ----------------------
SIST EN IEC 61500:2019
– 6 – IEC 61500:2018  IEC 2018

IEC 61513 and IEC 63046 refer directly to other IEC SC 45A standards for general topics

related to categorization of functions and classification of systems, qualification, separation,

defence against common cause failure, control room design, electromagnetic compatibility,

cybersecurity, software and hardware aspects for programmable digital systems, coordination

of safety and security requirements and management of ageing. The standards referenced

directly at this second level should be considered together with IEC 61513 and IEC 63046 as

a consistent document set.

At a third level, IEC SC 45A standards not directly referenced by IEC 61513 or by IEC 63046

are standards related to specific equipment, technical methods, or specific activities. Usually

these documents, which make reference to second-level documents for general topics, can be

used on their own.

A fourth level extending the IEC SC 45A standard series, corresponds to the Technical

Reports which are not normative.

The IEC SC 45A standard series consistently implements and details the safety and security

principles and basic aspects provided in the relevant IAEA safety standards and in the

relevant documents of the IAEA nuclear security series (NSS). In particular this includes the

IAEA requirements SSR-2/1, establishing safety requirements related to the design of nuclear

power plants, the IAEA safety guide SSG-30 dealing with the safety classification of

structures, systems and components in NPP, the IAEA safety guide SSG-39 dealing with the

design of instrumentation and control systems for NPPs, the IAEA safety guide SSG-34

dealing with the design of electrical power systems for NPPs and the implementing guide

NSS17 for computer security at nuclear facilities. The safety and security terminology and

definitions used by the IEC SC 45A standards are consistent with those used by the IAEA.

IEC 61513 and IEC 63046 have adopted a presentation format similar to the basic safety

publication IEC 61508 with an overall life-cycle framework and a system life-cycle framework.

Regarding nuclear safety, IEC 61513 and IEC 63046 provide the interpretation of the general

requirements of IEC 61508-1, IEC 61508-2 and IEC 61508-4, for the nuclear application

sector. In this framework IEC 60880, IEC 62138 and IEC 62566 correspond to IEC 61508-3

for the nuclear application sector. IEC 61513 and IEC 63046 refer to ISO as well as to IAEA

GS-R-3 and IAEA GS-G-3.1 and IAEA GS-G-3.5 for topics related to quality assurance (QA).

At level 2, regarding nuclear security, IEC 62645 is the entry document for the IEC SC 45A

security standards. It builds upon the valid high level principles and main concepts of the

generic security standards, in particular ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002; it adapts them

and completes them to fit the nuclear context and coordinates with the IEC 62443 series. Also

at level 2, IEC 60964 is the entry document for the IEC SC 45A control rooms standards and

IEC 62342 is the entry document for the IEC SC 45A ageing management standards.

NOTE 1 It is assumed that for the design of I&C systems in NPPs that implement conventional safety functions

(e.g. to address worker safety, asset protection, chemical hazards, process energy hazards) international or

national standards would be applied.

NOTE 2 IEC SC 45A domain was extended in 2013 to cover electrical systems. In 2014 and 2015 discussions

were held in IEC SC 45A to decide how and where general requirements for the design of electrical systems were

to be considered. IEC SC 45A experts recommended that an independent standard be developed at the same level

as IEC 61513 to establish general requirements for electrical systems. Project IEC 63046 is now launched to cover

this objective. When IEC 63046 will be published this NOTE 2 of the introduction of IEC SC 45A standards will be

suppressed.

CATEGORY A FUNCTIONS
1 Scope

This document establishes requirements for data communication which is used in systems

performing category A functions in nuclear power plants.

It covers also interface requirements for data communication of equipment performing

category A functions with other systems including those performing category B and C

functions and functions not important to safety.

The scope of this document is restricted to the consideration of data communication within the

plant I&C safety systems. It does not cover communication by telephone, radio, voice, fax,

email, public address, etc.

The internal operation and the detailed technical specification of data communication

equipment are not in the scope of this document. This document is not applicable to the

internal connections and data communication of a processor unit, its memory and control logic.

It does not address the internal processing of instrumentation and control computer based

systems.

This document gives requirements for functions and properties of on-line plant data

communication by reference to IEC 60880 and IEC 60987, produced within the framework of

IEC 61513. It requires categorisation of the communication functions in accordance with

IEC 61226, which in turn requires environmental and seismic qualification (i.e., the

environment where the safety function is required to operate) according to
IEC/IEEE 60780-323 and IEC 60980.
