Title Electrical safety - Classification of interfaces for equipment to be connected to information and communications technology networks
Project Number 16432
Abstract/Scope This technical report applies to equipment interfaces. These interfaces within the equipment may be connected to telecommunications networks, they may form part of the telecommunications network infrastructure or they may provide localized transfer of data. This technical report provides guidance on the classification of interfaces in accordance with the circuit types defined in EN 60950 following an analysis of the telecommunication network characteristics.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
