Title Standard data element types with associated classification scheme for electric components - Part 2: EXPRESS dictionary schema
Project Number 21619
Abstract/Scope IEC 61360-2:2012 provides a formal model for data according to the scope as given in IEC 61360-1 and ISO 13584-42. It provides a means for the computer-sensible representation and exchange of such data, allowing for the implementation of dictionary systems dealing with data delivered according to either of the standards. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2002, and its Amendment 1 (2003). It is a technical revision. It includes the following significant technical changes: - separation of concepts between characterization class and categorization class; - introduction of value constraints on classes and properties; - addition of various new subtypes for data types, including rational_type; - improvement on the representation of unit of measurement.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
