Reference EN 61987-10:2009
Title Industrial-process measurement and control - Data structures and elements in process equipment catalogues - Part 10: Lists of properties (LOPs) for industrial-process measurement and control for electronic data exchange - Fundamentals
Project Number 21899
Abstract/Scope IEC 61987-10:2009(E) provides a method of standardizing the descriptions of process control devices, instrumentation and auxiliary equipment as well as their operating environments and operating requirements (for example, measuring point specification data). The aims of this standard are: - to define a common language for customers and suppliers through the publication of Lists of Properties (LOPs), - to optimize workflows between customers and suppliers as well as in processes such as engineering, development and purchasing within their own organizations, to reduce transaction costs. This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 61987-1:2006.

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
