International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies


Interpretation Sheets (IS)

The CENELEC Interpretation Sheet (IS) is a published sheet giving the interpretation of a CENELEC standard.
In principle, a CENELEC standard is written in such a way that there is no need for interpretation by the user. However, the parties involved in the use of the standards, such as manufacturers, certifiers and legislators, read standards from their own perception and do not always understand the intentions expressed by the standards. Therefore, the Technical Body responsible for the published standard asks CCMC to issue, after due approval procedure, an Interpretation sheet, which purpose is to clarify the meaning or the intention of a specific part of the standard.
