80416-3 © IEC:2002– 5 –INTERNATIONAL ELECTROTECHNICAL COMMISSION____________BASIC PRINCIPLES FOR GRAPHICAL SYMBOLSFOR USE ON EQUIPMENT –Part 3: Guidelines for the application of graphical symbolsFOREWORD1)The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprisingall national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of the IEC is to promoteinternational co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. Tothis end and in addition to other activities, the IEC publishes International Standards. Their preparation isentrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with mayparticipate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaisingwith the IEC also participate in this preparation. The IEC collaborates closely with the InternationalOrganization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between thetwo organizations.2)The formal decisions or agreements of the IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, aninternational consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representationfrom all interested National Committees.3)The documents produced have the form of recommendations for international use and are published in the formof standards, technical specifications, technical reports or guides and they are accepted by the NationalCommittees in that sense.4)

In order to promote international unification, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC InternationalStandards transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional standards. Anydivergence between the IEC Standard and the corresponding national or regional standard shall be clearlyindicated in the latter.5)

The IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for anyequipment declared to be in conformity with one of its standards.6)

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subjectof patent rights. The IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.International Standard IEC 80416-3 has been prepared by IEC subcommittee 3C: Graphicalsymbols for use on equipment, of IEC technical committee 3: Information structures,documentation and graphical symbols.This International Standard has been prepared in co-operation with ISO/TC 145.The text of this standard is based on the following documents:FDISReport on voting3C/917/FDIS3C/988/RVDFull information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report onvoting indicated in the above table.In order to collect all requirements concerning relevant basic principles within one singlenumerical series, ISO technical committee 145: Graphical symbols and IEC technicalcommittee 3 agreed to publish all parts of this International Standard w
