IEC 61977:2020 applies to the family of fibre optic filters. These components have all of the following general features:
- they are passive for the reason that they contain no optoelectronic or other transducing elements which can process the optical signal launched into the input port;
- they modify the spectral intensity distribution in order to select some wavelengths and inhibit others;
- they are fixed, i.e. the modification of the spectral intensity distribution is fixed and cannot be tuned;
- they have input and output ports or a common port (having both functions of input and output) for the transmission of optical power; the ports are optical fibre or optical fibre connectors;
- they differ according to their characteristics. They can be divided into the following categories:
- short-wave pass (only wavelengths lower than or equal to a specified value are passed);
- long-wave pass (only wavelengths greater than or equal to a specified value are passed);
- band-pass (only an optical window is allowed);
- notch (only an optical window is inhibited);
- gain flattening (compensating the spectral profile of the device).
It is also possible to have a combination of the above categories. This document provides the generic information including terminology of IEC 61753-04x series documents. Published IEC 61753-04x series documents are listed in the Bibliography. This document establishes uniform requirements for optical, mechanical and environmental properties.

IEC 61300-2-46:2019 is available as IEC 61300-2-46:2019 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.
IEC 61300-2-46:2019 describes a test to determine the suitability of a fibre optic device to withstand the environmental condition of high humidity and change of temperature which can occur in actual use, storage and/or transport. The test is primarily intended to determine the suitability of fibre optic components under conditions of high humidity – combined with cyclic temperature changes and, in general, producing condensation on the surface of the device under test (DUT). Absorption of moisture can result in swelling that would destroy functional utility, cause loss of physical strength, and cause changes in other important mechanical properties. Degradation of optical properties can also occur. Although not necessarily intended as a simulated tropical test, this test can, nevertheless, be useful in determining moisture absorption of insulating or covering materials. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2006. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

IEC 61755-6-2: 2018 defines the dimensional limits of an optical interface for reference connectors necessary to meet specific requirements for fibre-to-fibre interconnection of non-angled polished multimode reference connectors with cylindrical ferrules intended to be used for attenuation measurements in the field or factory. One grade of reference connector is defined in this document. The reference connector is terminated to selected IEC 60793-2-10:2015 A1a fibre. The geometrical dimensions and tolerances of the specified reference connector have been developed primarily to limit the variation in measured attenuation between multiple sets of two reference connectors, and therefore to limit the variation in measured attenuation between randomly chosen reference connectors when mated with connectors in the field or factory.

IEC 61753-121-2:2017 specifies the test requirements for cords including reference cords used in a controlled (Category C) environment according to IEC 61753-1, where the connectors already comply with the Category C requirements of IEC 61753-1. The tests selected are a subset of the connector tests from IEC 61753-1 appropriate for requalification with additional requirements relevant to cords and the connector/cable interface. The cords consist of simplex or duplex fibre optic cable terminated at each end of the cable with single-mode fibre optic connector plugs with cylindrical ferrules. The operational wavelength range is between 1 260 nm and 1 625 nm. Short length cords are used as test samples as the attenuation of the cord and the temperature cycling performance will be affected by longer lengths of cable. It is important that any qualification of a cord whose length is greater than 5 m takes these factors into account. The relevant requirements for the mechanical interface of connector sets are covered by the IEC 61754 all parts. The relevant requirements for the optical interface of connector sets are covered by IEC 61755 (all parts). The relevant requirements for performance of connector sets are covered by IEC 61753 (all parts). The relevant requirements for fibres are covered by IEC 60793-2-50. The relevant requirements for cables for cords are covered by IEC 60794-2-50. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2010. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- merge an optical performance requirement of a reference cord;
- delete Annexes D and E due to updated relevant standard document;
- modify the whole document structure according to the latest ISO/IEC Directives.
