IEC 62079 pdf download.Preparation of instructions – Structuring, content and presentation
This International Standard provides general principles and detailed requirements for the design and formulation of all types of instructions that will be necessary or helpful for products of all kinds ranging from small, simple ones, such as a tin of paint, to large or highly complex ones, such as a large industrial installation. It is intended for application by − product manufacturers, technical writers, technical illustrators, software designers, translators or other people engaged in the work of conceiving and drafting such instructions; − authorized representatives of the product manufacturer in the country of product installation and/or usage. It will also be helpful in contract negotiations between the product supplier and the customer. This standard does not establish a fixed amount of documentation that has to be delivered together with a product. This would obviously not be possible because this standard has to be valid for all kinds of products but the amount of documentation very much depends on the complexity of the product. Therefore, this standard lists all possible kinds of instructions one can think of. What this standard does aim to standardize is how such instructions are to be prepared.
