Foreword
IS0 (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide
federation of national standards bodies (IS0 member bodies). The work of
preparing International Standards is normally carried out through IS0
technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for
which a technical committee has been established has the right to be
represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental
and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. IS0
collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission
(I EC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.
The main task of technical committees is to prepare International
Standards, but in exceptional circumstances a technical committee may
propose the publication of a Technical Report of one of the following
types:
the required support cannot be obtained for the
- type 1, when
publication of a n I nternationa Standard, despite repeated effo rts;
3 still under technical development or
- type 2, when the subject ic
where for any other reason there is the future but not immediate
possibility of an agreement on an International Standard;
type 3, when a technical committee has collected data of a different
kind from that which is normally published as an International
Standard (“state of the art”, for example).
Technical Reports of types 1 and 2 are subject to review within three
years of publication, to decide whether they can be transformed into
International Standards. Technical Reports of type 3 do not necessarily
have to be reviewed until the data they provide are considered to be no
longer valid or useful.
ISO/TR 8357, which is a Technical Report of type 3, was prepared
by Technical Committee lSO/TC 22, Road vehicles.
