IEC 61820-1:2019 covers principles of design and installation requirements for AGL systems including control, monitoring and transformation of energy, the cables and any electrical component utilized to produce the light intended to be used as a visual aid for air and ground navigation. This document defines in general the fundamental principles to provide safe, reliable and efficient operation of AGL systems independent of the particular system design. Where certain aspects of design are specific to a particular type of system (e.g. series-circuit), these are supplemented in the applicable part.

IEC 61821:2011 applies to the maintenance of AGL constant current series circuits. This International Standard:
- covers constant current series circuits for AGL installed at aerodromes and heliports;
- concentrates on providing the safety requirements for the maintenance of an AGL constant current series circuit. It is recognized that AGL constant current series circuits of different design characteristics and parameters are in existence;
- is mainly concerned with safety to persons by specifying the rules and fundamental principles for the maintenance of AGL constant current series circuits;
- is not intended to apply to AGL primary series circuits supplied directly from a mains constant voltage source;
- is not intended to be used for public street lighting, roadway lighting or any other installation requiring the use of constant current series circuits.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002. It is a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) addition of references to normative references;
b) addition of notes in Clauses 5, 6 and 7;
c) modification of pre-work procedures in item e) of 7.2.2.

IEC 61822:2009 specifies the requirements for a Constant Current Regulator (CCR) having a nominal output of 6,6 A for use in an aeronautical ground lighting constant current series circuit. However, CCRs may be manufactured which have a different power rating (kVA) and current steps than those specified in this standard in order to be used on existing circuits. This standard should be applied where appropriate for these CCRs. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002. It is a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) revision and update of terms and definitions;
b) addition of new paragraphs, such as "Nominal output current range and tolerances";
c) modification of some paragraphs, such as those related to "Local control" and "Remote control";
d) deletion of some paragraphs, in particular "Power transformers" and "Output current indicator".

IEC 61823:2002 specifies the characteristics of aeronautical ground lighting series trans-formers (AGLST) used in aeronautical ground lighting for 6,6 A series circuits, at a service voltage of up to 5 kV, supplied by constant current regulators up to 30 kVA in rating. AGL series transformers provide power to airport lighting luminaires or other loads (resistive) from their secondary circuits. The AGL series transformers provide continuity of the series circuit in the event of a loss of the load on the transformer, and electrical isolation between the primary circuit supplied by a constant current regulator, and the secondary circuit connected to the load under conditions defined in this standard. This bilingual version (2016-11) corresponds to the English version, published in 2002-12.

IEC 62143:2002(E) This technical specification:
- outlines a methodology to address the safety at all lifecycle phases of an AGL system, including the evaluation, design, procurement, manufacture, installation, commissioning, operational use, maintenance, modification, and decommissioning of the AGL system;
- applies to an AGL system at an aerodrome or heliport which provides visual guidance to a pilot and is provided, operated and maintained by the aerodrome authority;
- applies primarily to a new AGL system.
