This European Standard was approved by CENELEC on 2006-06-01. CENELEC members are bound to comply

with the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations which stipulate the conditions for giving this European Standard

the status of a national standard without any alteration.

Up-to-date lists and bibliographical references concerning such national standards may be obtained on

application to the Central Secretariat or to any CENELEC member.

This European Standard exists in three official versions (English, French, German). A version in any other

language made by translation under the responsibility of a CENELEC member into its own language and notified

to the Central Secretariat has the same status as the official versions.

CENELEC members are the national electrotechnical committees of Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, the Czech

Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia,

Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain,

Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Foreword

The text of document 3/771/FDIS, future edition 2 of IEC 61082-1, prepared by IEC TC 3, Information

structures, documentation and graphical symbols, was submitted to the IEC-CENELEC parallel vote and

was approved by CENELEC as EN 61082-1 on 2006-06-01.

This European Standard supersedes EN 61082-1:1993 + A1:1995 + A2:1996, EN 61082-2:1994,

EN 61082-3:1994 and EN 61082-4:1996.

Compared to the above replaced standards, the following substantial changes have been made:

– the scope of EN 61082 has been gradually shifted from the rules of preparation of documents to the

rules of presentation of information in documents;

– the information is split in a way to establish general rules that are valid for the preparation of all

document kinds, to more specific rules for specific document kinds;

– terminology has been improved in a way that terms related to document kinds are clearly differentiated

from those related to forms of presentations;

– the publication is focusing on rules that support the legibility of a document and not on the process of

developing the document;

– examples in the publication are shown only to that extent necessary for the understanding of the

concepts described. The use of comprehensive examples and diagrams are limited as such examples

do not illustrate rules more efficiently than small sketches.
The following dates were fixed:
– latest date by which the EN has to be implemented
at national level by publication of an identical
national standard or by endorsement (dop) 2007-03-01
– latest date by which the national standards conflicting
with the EN have to be withdrawn (dow) 2009-06-01
Annex ZA has been added by CENELEC.
__________
Endorsement notice

The text of the International Standard IEC 61082-1:2006 was approved by CENELEC as a European

Standard without any modification.

In the official version, for Bibliography, the following notes have to be added for the standards indicated:

IEC 60073 NOTE Harmonized as EN 60073:2002 (not modified).
IEC 60204-1 NOTE IEC 60204-1:2005 is harmonized as EN 60204-1:2006 (modified).
