Video surveillance systems for use in security applications - Part 1-1: System requirements - General

IEC 62676-1-1:2013 specifies the minimum requirements and gives recommendations for Video Surveillance Systems (VSS) (so far called CCTV), installed for security applications. This Standard specifies the minimum performance requirements and functional requirements to be agreed on between customer, law-enforcement where applicable and supplier in the operational requirement, but does not include requirements for design, planning, installation, testing, operation or maintenance. This standard excludes installation of remotely monitored detector activated VSSs. This IEC Standard also applies to VSS sharing means of detection, triggering, interconnection, control, communication and power supplies with other applications.

Systèmes de vidéosurveillance destinés à être utilisés dans les applications de sécurité - Partie 1-1: Exigences systèmes - Généralités

La CEI 62676-1-1:2013 spécifie les exigences minimales et donne des recommandations pour les systèmes de vidéosurveillance (VSS), appelés jusqu'à présent CCTV, installés pour les applications de sécurité. La présente Norme spécifie les exigences minimales de performances et de fonctionnement à convenir entre le client, les organismes chargés de l'application de la loi, le cas échéant, et le fournisseur dans le cadre des exigences d'exploitation, mais elle n'inclut pas d'exigences pour la conception, la planification, l'installation, les essais, l'exploitation ou la maintenance. La présente Norme exclut l'installation de VSS activés par des détecteurs contrôlés à distance. La présente Norme CEI s'applique aussi aux VSS qui partagent leurs moyens de détection, de déclenchement, d'interconnexion, de commande, de communication et d'alimentation avec d'autres applications.

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 62676-1-1 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 79:

Alarm and electronic security systems.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
79/432/FDIS 79/445/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The reader's attention is drawn to the fact that Annex A lists all of the “in-some-country”

clauses on differing practices of a less permanent nature relating to the subject of this

standard.

INTRODUCTION

The IEC Technical Committee 79 in charge of alarm and electronic security systems together

with many governmental organisations, test houses and equipment manufacturers has defined

a common framework for video surveillance transmission in order to achieve interoperability

between products.

The IEC 62676 series of standards on video surveillance system is divided into 4 independent

parts:
Part 1: System requirements
Part 2: Video transmission protocols
Part 3: Analog and digital video interfaces
Part 4: Application guidelines (to be published)

Each part has its own clauses on scope, references, definitions and requirements.

This IEC 62676-1 series consists of 2 subparts, numbered parts 1-1 and 1-2 respectively:

IEC 62676-1-1, System requirements – General

IEC 62676-1-2, System requirements – Performance requirements for video transmission

The first subpart of this IEC 62676-1 series applies to systems for surveillance of private and

public areas. It includes four security grades and four environmental classes.

This IEC Standard is intended to assist Video Surveillance System (VSS) companies,

manufacturers, system integrators, installers, consultants, owners, users, insurers and law

enforcement in achieving a complete and accurate specification of the surveillance system.

This International Standard does not specify the type of technology for a certain observation

task.

Due to the wide range of VSS applications e.g. security, safety, public safety, transportation,

etc. only the minimum requirements are covered in this standard.

For specific applications e.g. in homeland security, additional requirements need to be

applied, which are defined in the annex of this standard.

This IEC Standard is not intended to be used for testing individual VSS components.

Today VSSs reside in security networks using IT infrastructure, equipment and connections

within the protected site itself.

VIDEO SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS FOR
USE IN SECURITY APPLICATIONS –
Part 1-1: System requirements – General
1 Scope

This part of IEC 62676 specifies the minimum requirements and gives recommendations for

Video Surveillance Systems (VSS), so far called CCTV, installed for security applications.

This Standard specifies the minimum performance requirements and functional requirements

to be agreed on between customer, law-enforcement where applicable and supplier in the

operational requirement, but does not include requirements for design, planning, installation,

testing, operation or maintenance. This standard excludes installation of remotely monitored

detector activated VSSs.
This IEC Standard also applies to VSS sharing means of detection, triggering,

interconnection, control, communication and power supplies with other applications. The

operation of a VSS is not be adversely influenced by other applications.

Requirements are specified for VSS components where the relevant environment is classified.

This classification describes the environment in which the VSS component may be expected

to operate as designed. When the requirements of the four environmental classes are

inadequate, due to the extreme conditions experienced in certain geographic locations,

special national conditions may be applied (see Annex A).
2 Normative references
