    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives general principles and detailed requirements for the design and formulation of all types of instructions for use that will be necessary or helpful for users of products of all kinds, ranging from a tin of paint to large or highly complex products, such as large industrial machinery, turnkey based plants or buildings.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This part of IEC 82079 provides general principles and detailed requirements for the design and formulation of all types of instructions for use that will be necessary or helpful for users of products of all kinds, ranging from a tin of paint to large or highly complex products, such as large industrial machinery, turnkey based plants or buildings.

    NOTE The term \'product\' as defined in 3.29 relates to consumer, non-consumer, electrical, electronic, electromechanical, mechanical and other products.

    This part is intended for all parties involved in the preparation of instructions for use, for example:

    • Suppliers, technical writers, technical illustrators, software designers, translators or other people engaged in the work of conceiving and drafting such instructions for use;

    This part of IEC 82079 does not specify a fixed amount of documentation that has to be delivered with a product. This is obviously not possible because this part is applicable to all kinds of products. The amount of documentation required, will depend on the nature of the product, its complexity and the skills of the intended users.
