This European standard (EN) provides a general methodology for:
- Assessing the recyclability of energy related products
- Assessing the recoverability of energy related products
- Assessing the ability to access or remove certain components or assemblies from energy related products to facilitate their potential for recycling or other recovery operations.
- Assessing the recyclability of critical raw materials from energy related products.
This EN will elaborate on recyclability and recoverability in a horizontal, cross-product way. However, a correct assessment can only be done in a product-specific way, taking into account specific parameters of a specific product group. This standard will define a series of parameters which may be considered to calculate product specific recycling and recoverability rates.

CEN and CENELEC have had an intellectual property rights (IPR) policy for many years under the provision of the CEN-CENELEC Guide 8 "Standardization and intellectual property rights (IPR)"; the purpose of these common guidelines is to provide in simple words practical guidance to the participants in their technical bodies in case patent or other intellectual property rights matters arise.
For the sake of clarity this document refers to "patents", as most - but not all - IPR issues that CEN and CENELEC technical bodies have to deal with concern patent rights. However, the same implementation principles shall apply to other statutory intellectual property rights based on inventions that may arise, such as utility models or registered semiconductor topographies (see Clause  2, Terms and definitions).
Considering that technical experts are not normally familiar with the complex issue of patent law, the Common Patent Policy for ISO/IEC/ITU endorsed by CEN and CENELEC (hereafter referred to as the "Patent Policy") was drafted in its operative part as a checklist covering the three different cases which may arise if a deliverable requires licences for patents to be practiced or implemented, fully or partly.
These Guidelines for Implementation of the Common Policy on Patents for CEN and CENELEC (hereafter referred to as the "Guidelines") are intended to complement, clarify and facilitate the implementation of the Patent Policy, a copy of which can be found in Annex 1 and also on the websites of both organisations.
The CEN and CENELEC Patent Policy requests stakeholders participating in technical Committees, and in particular patent holders, to proceed to early disclosures and identification of patents that may be considered, at the best of their knowledge, to be essential for the future use of the deliverables under development. In doing so, greater efficiency in standards development is possible and potential patent rights problems can be avoided.
CEN and CENELEC are not involved in evaluating patent relevance or essentiality with regard to deliverables, nor to interfere with licensing negotiations, or engage in settling disputes on patents. This is left to the parties concerned.

This Standard specifies the requirements applicable to the concept definition, design, analysis, development, production, test verification and in­orbit operation of space mechanisms on spacecraft and payloads in order to meet the mission performance requirements.
This version of the standard has not been produced with the objective to cover also the requirements for mechanisms on launchers. Applicability of the requirements contained in this current version of the standard to launcher mechanisms is a decision left to the individual launcher project.
Requirements in this Standard are defined in terms of what shall be accomplished, rather than in terms of how to organise and perform the necessary work. This allows existing organizational structures and methods to be applied where they are effective, and for the structures and methods to evolve as necessary without rewriting the standards. Complementary non-ECSS handbooks and guidelines exist to support mechanism design.

This Standard defines the technical requirements and quality assurance provisions for the manufacture and verification of high-reliability electronic circuits based on surface mounted device (SMD) and mixed technology.
The Standard defines acceptance and rejection criteria for high-reliability manufacture of surface-mount and mixed-technology circuit assemblies intended to withstand normal terrestrial conditions and the vibrational g loads and environment imposed by space flight.
The proper tools, correct materials, design and workmanship are covered by this document. Workmanship standards are included to permit discrimination between proper and improper work.
The assembly of leaded devices to through-hole terminations and general soldering principles are covered in ECSS-Q-ST-70-08.
Requirements related to printed circuit boards are contained in ECSS-Q-ST-70 10, ECSS-Q-ST-70-11 and ECSS-Q-ST-70-12 . The mounting and supporting of devices, terminals and conductors prescribed herein applies to assemblies at PCB level designed to continuously operate over the mission within the temperature limits of -55 C to +85 C.
For temperatures outside this normal range, special design, verification and qualification testing is performed to ensure the necessary environmental survival capability.
Special thermal heat sinks are applied to devices having high thermal dissipation (e.g. junction temperatures of 110 C, power transistors) in order to ensure that solder joints do not exceed 85 C.
Verification of SMD assembly processes is made on test vehicles (surface mount verification samples). Temperature cycling ensures the operational lifetime for spacecraft. However, mechanical testing only indicates SMD reliability as it is unlikely that the test vehicle represents every flight configuration.
This Standard does not cover the qualification and acceptance of the EQM and FM equipment with surface-mount and mixed-technology.
The qualification and acceptance tests of equipment manufactured in accordance with this Standard are covered by ECSS-E-ST-10-03.
This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristics and constraints of a space project, in accordance with ECSS-S-ST-00.

The purpose of this NWIP is to produce an ECSS standard for the Exchange of Thermal Model Data for Space Applications. The standard will be based on a draft standard resulting from an activity performed by ESA only in 2013/2014 called "Standard for Exchange of Thermal Model Data for Space Applications".
The content of the standard is already defined in draft form under the name "STEP-TAS" ("STEP-based draft application protocol for Thermal Analysis for Space"). This protocol has been implemented in a number of thermal analysis tools and is successfully used in both ESA and non-ESA space projects. The maturity of the protocol is therefore well-established.
The global objective of this document is to define and describe the standard protocol for Exchange of Thermal Model Data for Space Applications, previously known as STEP-TAS protocol.

This Standard defines a set of software product assurance requirements to be used for the development and maintenance of software for space systems. Space systems include manned and unmanned spacecraft, launchers, payloads, experiments and their associated ground equipment and facilities. Software includes the software component of firmware.
This Standard also applies to the development or reuse of non­deliverable software which affects the quality of the deliverable product or service provided by a space system, if the service is implemented by software.
ECSS-Q-ST-80 interfaces with space engineering and management, which are addressed in the Engineering (-E) and Management (-M) branches of the ECSS System, and explains how they relate to the software product assurance processes.
This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristic and constraints of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00.
Tailoring of this Standard to a specific business agreement or project, when software product assurance requirements are prepared, is also addressed in clause 4.3.

This Standard establishes the requirements for the verification of a space system product.
It defines the fundamental concepts of the verification process, the criteria for defining the verification strategy and specifies the requirements for the implementation of the verification programme. It includes also the list of the expected documentation (i.e. Document requirements definitions, DRDs).
This Standard is intended to apply to different products at different levels from a single equipment to the overall system.
Discipline related verification aspects are complemented in Standards specific to those disciplines.
For verification process for SW the following standards are considered fully sufficient for development of these items:
-   ECSS-E-ST-40 Space engineering - Software
-   ECSS-Q-ST-80 Space product assurance - Software product assurance
Detailed requirements for Testing are covered in the ECSS E-ST-10-03.
This standard does not specifically address Validation of space products as a separate process, since product Verification is performed against requirements that also address the suitability of the product to fulfil the needs of its intended use. As such, Validation is achieved through the Verification process provided adequate requirements are placed on the product.
It is recognised that testing and analysis also occur during the product development process, but they are not addressed by this standard as they are not formal requirement verification activities in the sense of the customer-supplier relationship.
The guidelines on verification are provided in the associated handbook ECSS-E-HB-10-02A.
The requirements on the systems engineering process are gathered in ECSS-E-ST-10 "System Engineering"; specific aspects of the SE process are further elaborated in dedicated standards, in particular: ECSS-E-ST-10-06 "Technical Specification", ECSS-E-ST-10-02 "Verification" (the present standard), and ECSS-E-ST-10-03 "Testing". These standards are based on the same principles, process and documentation model.
The applicability of each these standards can therefore not be considered in isolation from the others
This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristic and constraints of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00.

This document specifies general requirements for small-bore connectors, which convey liquids or gases in healthcare applications. These small-bore connectors are used in medical devices or accessories intended for use with a patient.
This document also specifies the healthcare fields in which these small-bore connectors are intended to be used.
These healthcare fields include, but are not limited to:
—          breathing systems and driving gases;
—          enteral;
—          limb cuff inflation;
—          neuraxial;
—          intravascular or hypodermic.
This document provides the methodology to assess non-interconnectable characteristics of small-bore connectors based on their inherent design and dimensions in order to reduce the risk of misconnections between medical devices or between accessories for different applications as specified in this document as well as those that will be developed under future parts of the ISO 80369 series.
This document does not specify requirements for the medical devices or accessories that use these small-bore connectors. Such requirements are given in particular International Standards for specific medical devices or accessories.
NOTE 1    Clause 7 allows for additional designs of small-bore connectors for new applications for inclusion in the ISO 80369 series.
NOTE 2    Manufacturers are encouraged to incorporate the small-bore connectors specified in the ISO 80369 series into medical devices, medical systems or accessories, even if currently not required by the relevant particular medical device standards. It is expected that when the relevant particular medical device standards are revised, the risks associated with changing to the new small-bore connectors as specified in the ISO 80369 series of standards will be considered.
NOTE 3    The connectors specified in the ISO 80369 series are intended for use only in their specified application. Use of these connectors for other applications increases risk that a hazardous misconnection could occur.
NOTE 4    Manufacturers and responsible organizations are encouraged to report their experience with the small-bore connectors specified in the ISO 80369 series to the Secretariat of ISO/TC 210 so that this feedback can be considered during the revision of the relevant part of the ISO 80369 series.

The target applications covered by this standard are all missions traditionally provided with power distribution and protection by LCLs/RLCLs (science, earth observation, navigation) with exclusion of telecom applications which are traditionally provided with power distribution and protection by fuses.
The present standard applies to power distribution by LCLs/RLCLs for power systems, and in general for satellites, required to be Single Point Failure Free.
The present standard document applies exclusively to the main bus power distribution by LCLs/RLCLs to external satellite loads.
Internal power system protections of LCLs/RLCLs are not covered.
Paralleling of LCLs to increase power supply line reliability is not covered by the present standard, since this choice does not appreciably change the reliability of the overall function (i.e. LCL plus load).
In fact, a typical reliability figure of the LCL (limited to the loss of its switch ON capability) is 20 FIT or less.
If the load to be connected to the LCL line has a substantial higher failure rate than this, it is not necessary to duplicate the LCL to supply that load.

This Standard defines the dependability assurance programme and the dependability requirements for space systems.
Dependability assurance is a continuous and iterative process throughout the project life cycle.
The ECSS dependability policy for space projects is applied by implementing a dependability assurance programme, which comprises:
-   identification of all technical risks with respect to functional needs which can lead to non-compliance with dependability requirements,
-   application of analysis and design methods to ensure that dependability targets are met,
-   optimization of the overall cost and schedule by making sure that:
-   design rules, dependability analyses and risk reducing actions are tailored with respect to an appropriate severity categorisation,
-   risks reducing actions are implemented continuously since the early phase of a project and especially during the design phase.
-   inputs to serial production activities.
The dependability requirements for functions implemented in software, and the interaction between hardware and software, are identified in this Standard.
NOTE 1   The requirements for the product assurance of software are defined in ECSS-Q-ST-80.
NOTE 2   The dependability assurance programme supports the project risk management process as described in ECSS-M-ST-80
This Standard applies to all European space projects. The provisions of this document apply to all project phases.
Depending of the product category, the application of this standard needs to be checked and if needed tailored. The pre-tailoring table in clause 8 contains the applicability of the requirements of this document and its annexes according to product type.
