CLC/TC 215 Scope

CLC/TC 215

- To address standardization in the field of electrotechnical aspects of telecommunication equipment and associated infrastructures and liaise with other standardization bodies as appropriate.

- To prepare harmonized standards (EN, TS or TR) covering all aspects of generic and application-specific telecommunications cabling (e.g. ISDN, LAN and others) within all types of premises.

- These documents also cover the requirements and recommendations for building infrastructures related to the effective installation and operation of associated telecommunication equipment by reference to the existing or forthcoming standards provided by the relevant committees or using technical inputs from them.

- To provide contributions to ETSI standards (EN and/or other deliverables) in areas related to those detailed above.

- To serve as a mediator in those cases where in accordance with the CENELEC-ETSI-Agreement ETSI indicates to CENELEC the need of standardization activities (EN/TS/TR or contributions to ETSI deliverables) of electrotechnical aspects related to its work.

- Identification of the appropriate TC within CENELEC, thereby providing proper assignment of the technical work to the responsible group of experts.

- Where an appropriate TC within CENELEC cannot be identified, TC 215 may decide to establish a Working Group to resolve a specific task.

- To review international standardization results of ISO/IEC JTC 1 as far as telecommunication equipment with respect to Customer Premises Cabling and Energy Efficient Data Centres are concerned. This includes coordination of harmonization and assignment to the responsible organisation in close cooperation with CEN bearing in mind JTC 1 being a joint ISO/IEC-Committee.
