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.

INTRODUCTION

This standard is part of the IEC 60839 series, written to include the following parts:

Part 11-1: Electronic access control systems – System and components requirements

Part 11-2: Electronic access control systems – Application guidelines

This part of IEC 60839 describes the general requirements for planning, installation, operation,

maintenance and documentation for the application of electronic access control systems

(EACS).

The performance of the EACS is determined by the security grades allocated to the access

points. A risk assessment that identifies the risks and perceived threats should first be carried

out in order to establish the appropriate security grades.

Four security grades are available based upon the knowledge and tools available to a person

intent upon gaining unauthorised access and the type of application, taking into account

specific organizational aspects and the value of the assets.

Separate guidance is provided for each activity along with recommendations for the

documentation needed. A brief description of each section covering the activities is provided

below:

System planning: this section is intended to assist the designer with the selection of an

electronic access control system (EACS) that provides the control of access and security

integrity commensurate with the value of the assets requiring protection and the associated

risks. See Clause 7.

System design should minimise potential vulnerabilities that could be exploited to circumvent

the access control measures. It is recommended that safeguards are incorporated to give

early warning of attempts to circumvent the access control measures. See 7.3.

System installation: this section is intended to help those responsible for installing the EACS

by identifying issues which should be considered prior to commencing the installation and

during the installation of the system in order to ensure the EACS is correctly implemented as

specified during system planning. See Clause 8.

Commissioning and system handover: this section provides guidance to ensure the level of

performance required in the system planning is obtained and that the end user is provided

with the necessary documentation, records and operating instructions during the handover of

the EACS. See Clause 9.

System operation and maintenance: includes information regarding the responsibilities of the

end user of the EACS to ensure the system is operated correctly and adequately maintained.

It covers inspection, service and the use of remote diagnostics in order that the level of

performance determined during the system planning stages can be maintained. See Clause

10.

ALARM AND ELECTRONIC SECURITY SYSTEMS –
Part 11-2: Electronic access control systems –
Application guidelines
1 Scope

This part of IEC 60839 defines the minimum requirements and guidance for the installation

and operation of electronic access control systems (EACS) and/or accessory equipment to

meet different levels of protection.

This standard includes requirements for planning, installation, commissioning, maintenance

and documentation for the application of EACS installed in and around buildings and areas.

The equipment functions are defined in the IEC 60839-11-1.

When the EACS includes functions relating to hold-up or the detection of intruders, the

requirements in standards relating to intrusion and hold-up are also applicable.

This standard provides application guidelines intended to assist those responsible for

establishing an EACS to ascertain the appropriate design and planning of the EACS, both in

terms of levels of protection and levels of performance necessary to provide the degree of

access control and protection considered appropriate for each installation. This is achieved by

scaling or classifying the features of electronic access control systems related to the security

functionality (e.g. recognition, access point actuation, access point monitoring, duress

signaling and system self-protection) in line with the known or perceived threat conditions.

This standard does not cover the methods and procedures for conducting a risk assessment.

6 Environmental and EMC considerations
6.1 General

Each component of an EACS is expected to operate correctly in its service environment and

that it will continue to do so for a reasonable time. Components shall be suitable for one of

the following environmental classes.
6.2 Environmental Class I – Equipment situated in indoor but restricted to
residential/office environment

Environmental Class I comprises environmental influences normally experienced indoors

when the temperature is well maintained (e.g. in a residential or commercial property).

NOTE Temperatures can be expected to vary between +5 °C and +40 °C.
6.3 Environmental Class II – Equipment situated indoor in general

Environmental Class II comprises environmental influences normally experienced indoors

when the temperature is not well maintained (e.g. in corridors, halls or staircases and where

condensation can occur on windows and in unheated storage areas or warehouses where

heating is intermittent).
NOTE Temperatures can be expected to vary between –10 °C and +55 °C.
---------------------- Page: 11 ----------------------
– 10 – IEC 60839-11-2:2014 © IEC 2014
6.4 Environmental Class III – Equipment situated outdoor – Sheltered or indoor
extreme conditions

Environmental Class III comprises environmental influences normally experienced out of

doors when the EACS components are not fully exposed to the weather or indoors where

environmental conditions are extreme.
NOTE Temperatures can be expected to vary between –25 °C and +55 °C.
6.5 Environmental Class IV – Equipment situated outdoor – General

Environmental Class IV comprises environmental influences normally experienced out of

doors when the EACS components are fully exposed to the weather.

NOTE Temperatures can be expected to vary between –25 °C and +70 °C depending on the region. The

temperature range can be extended to plus and/or minus for different geographical or climatic zones.

6.6 EMC

It is recommended that installation good practice be followed to reduce the unwanted effects

of electrical interference, e.g. interconnection wiring should not be run in the same conduit or

trunking as cables carrying mains supplies, or network and data cables carrying high

frequency signals unless they are physically separated and/or suitably screened so as to

prevent cross interference.

Additional filtering and/or screening of interconnecting cables might be necessary for

applications known to have high levels of conducted or radiated electrical interference, e.g. an

industrial plant operating high power electrical equipment.

The manufacturers’ guidelines for electromagnetic compatibility should be followed.

7 System planning
7.1 General

The objectives of the system planning stage are to determine the extent of EACS, to select

components of the appropriate functionality/performance criteria, security grade and

environmental classification and to prepare a system design proposal.

An access control system comprises all the logical functionality, constructional and

organizational facilities together with the physical equipment required for controlling access.

Particular care should be taken to minimize inconvenience to authorized users.
The implementation of an access control system should be
