This European Standard classifies floor gullies for use inside buildings, gives guidance for places of installation and specifies requirements for the construction, design, performance and marking of factory made gullies for buildings, irrespective of the material, for use in drainage systems requiring a trap with a mechanical closure (referred to as floor gullies).
Note: Floor gullies with a mechanical closure are not covered by Part 1, Part 6, Part 8.
These products are intended to be installed where:
- the building does not exceed a ground-floor and three floors above;
- infrequent use could result in a water seal evaporating.
This CEN workshop agreement proposes standards for modules of EMAs to be used in aeronautical applications. The modules are to be used in all kinds of airframes, fixed wing and helicopter, and all classes of aircraft, from business-jet to large aircraft.
Reverse hybrid mail operators cannot render distributed service and it is impossible to initiate any cooperation between RHM operators to balance the workload or perform cross border activities.
For sending of letters, posts currently accept the mail piece submission at almost any location regardless to whom the mail piece is to be delivered. Some of the postal operators are providing discounts when postal sorting is performed. There are also operators that perform the actual printing as close as possible to the recipient or apply different rules based on the postal network distance used by the mail piece.
With reverse hybrid mail, there is no process implemented that would "re-route" the physical mail piece to a scanning location as close as possible to the first sorting centre to process the mail piece.
CEN/TC331/WG2/PTK has identified the possibility to standardize mail piece routing for RHM.
The main goal is to re-route mail pieces directly at the first sorting centre to distributed PO boxes or delivery addresses. Mail piece routing according to the recipient's preference would allow RHM operators to run distributed scanning centres.
In order to route the mail pieces a switch function must be defined. The Mail Piece Routing Switch Standard will address the following questions:
- What message items are to be processed?
- What attributes are already present in/with these messages?
- Desktop research on existing similar applications
- Mapping of existing and expected requirements
- Survey to establish future needs
- Preferences of recipients
- Multiple distribution and delivery channels and their hierarchy
- Current standards already developed to be used in a Mail Piece Routing environment.
The work will give the following deliverables:
- Definition of possible message items to be processed by Mail Piece Routing
- Definition of existing and required attributes to process such messages in a postal way
- Definition of how a postal system can manage the flow of da ...
The work item will address the following questions:
- What addresses/preference databases are needed for different ways of distribution?
- What attributes are to be inked to addresses to enable non-repudiation services or services similar?
- Desktop research on existing similar address and preference databases
- Mapping of existing and expected requirements
- Survey to establish future needs
- Multiple distribution and delivery channels and their hierarchy based on preference services
- Current standards already developed for address templates or preference databases
Based on this the work item will give the following deliverables:
- Definition of possible addresses/preference databases needed for different ways of distribution
- Definition of existing and required attributes for address and preference databases to process documents in way postal services providers distribute and deliver
- Definition of how a postal system can manage the flow of data
- Rules and processes
- Decision hierarchy (who decides what)
- Exchange of addresses and preference data
- Draft for a preference database including existing and future building blocks
This document describes a standard method for determining the particle number concentration in ambient air in a range up to about 10 squared 7 cm-3 for averaging times equal to or larger than 1 min. The standard method is based on a Condensation Particle Counter (CPC) operated in the counting mode and an appropriate dilution system for concentrations exceeding the counting mode range. It also defines the performancee characteristics and the minimum requirements of the instruments to be used. The lower and upper sizes considered within this document are 7 nm and a few micrometres, respectively. This document describes sampling, operation, data processing and QA/QC procedures including calibration.
Geosynthetic Barriers - Characteristics required for use as a fluid barrier in the construction of underground structures (other than tunnels)
This European Standard specifies the relevant characteristics of geosynthetic barriers, including polymeric geosynthetic barriers, clay geosynthetic barriers and bituminous geosynthetic barriers, when used as fluid barriers in the construction underground structures (other than tunnels), and the appropriate test methods to determine these characteristics.
The intended use of these products is to control the leakage of water through the construction wall.
This standard is not applicable to geotextiles or geotextile-related products.
This standard provides for the evaluation of conformity of the product to this European Standard.
This standard defines requirements to be met by manufacturers and distributors with regard to the presentation of product properties.
This standard does not cover applications where the geosynthetic barrier is to be in contact with water that has been treated for human consumption.
NOTE: Where potable water is or may be in direct contact with the product the designer should also refer to other relevant standards, requirements and/or regulations.
Round and sawn timber - Methods of measurements of features and biological degradations
This European Standard specifies the methods of measuring features and biological degradations (caused by insects, fungi ...) taken into account in the visual grading of sawn timber and round timber for appearance or to assess its mechanical properties. It does not apply to the strength grading of structural timber (see EN 518 and EN 519).
This Standard applies to hardwood and softwood sawn timber, both square edged and unedged, to processed timber and to round timber. This standard does not apply to tropical timber.
Postal Services - Quality of service - In a multi operator environment
In addition to EN13850:20XX, this European Standard specifies methods for measuring the End-to-End transit time of domestic and cross-border Single Piece Priority Mail (SPPM), collected by two or more postal service operators in one field of study. This European standard does not apply in a single collection-operator environment.
In a Multiple-Operator environment the test mail measurement systems require a higher flexibility regarding the field of study as well as the choice of a representative design basis other than real mail information. The design basis is the most appropriate structural information available to characterize all real mail distributed in the field of study. Sections on the design basis in EN13850 are key references for this European Standard.
In a competitive market, the End-to-End service measured may be provided by a group of operators working either parallel in different distribution chains or together in the same distribution chain.
The method for End-to-End measurement specified in this European Standard is designed to provide End-to-End results, aggregated over all collection-operators.
NOTE: This standard is not providing a measurement method for ""Partial Pipeline"". (where the overall definition of Partial Pipeline is: ""anything less than end to end"")
The scope of the item involves the methods of measuring the capacity of photocatalytic materials, both in form of films, paints, conglomerates or solid mixtures to self-clean toward a model soiling mixture deposited on their surface under the action of both light and water. The formulation of the soiling mixture would contain soot to simulate carbonaceous airborne particulate matter for a clear substrate or a suitable white pigment for dark substrate, and a model polymer to simulate natural airborne organic matter condensation. Transparent substrates like glass are excluded.
Ambient air - Measurement of bioaerosols - Part 2: Planning and evaluation of plant-related plume measurements
This document describes the general requirements to be taken into account in planning and implementing plant-related plume measurements of microbial air pollutants. A basic principle of this method is to compare the concentrations in air unaffected by the activities of the plant (i.e. background air sampled upwind of the plant) with the concentration of bioaerosols in air downwind of the plant. It is this comparison that allows an assessment of the plant-related contribution and the mean spatial impact range to be made. As it has so far not been possible to set limit values based on dose-response relationships, the mean impact range is to be used as a first criterion for assessing the environmental impact of a plant. The scale of work for the plume measurements described is necessary to obtain statistically representative data about the impact range of the plant and/or source, taking into account the great variety of influencing factors. Plant-related measurements of bioaerosol concentrations in ambient air may be required in a number of regulatory situations. Examples of typical measurement objectives and indicative application scenarios are presented in the document. This method specifies the simultaneous measurement of background and downwind air quality to reduce the risk of invalid comparisons resulting from changing background air concentrations. Another important principle of this method is the requirement for repeated measures to take into account day to day and seasonal variations in the processes governing bioaerosol emissions and dispersion. The objective is to analyze a given measurement problem and derive the associated requirements for organization, the measurement method, the sampling strategy, the evaluation of the measured data, quality assurance and reporting.
CEN ISO/TS 17429 Intelligent transport systems - Co-operative systems - Profiles for processing and transfer of information between ITS stations for applications related to transport infrastructure management, control and guidance
This international standard falls into the Cooperative ITS set of standards based onthe ITS station reference architecture. Typically, raw and dense information transmitted by ITS stations (e.g. CAM and DENM broadcast from vehicles for road safety purposes) is collected by other ITS stations (presumably the roadside infrastructure ). This information must be processed and transferred in a standardized way between ITS stations (presumably between the roadside infrastructure and traffic control centres) so that it could be used for traffic management purposes by road operators. The processing of this information could also lead to improved road safety, improved road efficiency and reduced
greenhouse gas emissions. The purpose of this international standard is to specify the profiles for processing the collected information at the receiving ITS station and transferring the processed data to other ITS stations for applications related to transport infrastructure management, control and guidance. This standard will thus:
- select the services, functions and expected results,
- select the roles and responsibilities of all the involved actors,
- select involved functions and SAPs (Service Access Point) of the ITS station
- characterize how the collected data is pre-processed by the receiving ITS station,
- select the content of the information to be exchanged between the various
- characterize the level of performance (best effort or real-time, etc.), confidence
and security (authentication, encryption, etc.) for the transfer of the information,
- select the means by which the processed information is transferred (securely)
between the different actors.
Railway applications - Braking - Passenger coach test procedure
This European Standard specifies relevant methods of static and dynamic tests for braking performance of passenger carriages.
The tests described in this European Standard are intended for verification of the requirements regarding braking performance; in the series EN 14531 (and paragraph 9.4 of EN 50215).
Method of Calculation for the Energy Performance of Air Cleaning Devices and the Classification of the Energy Performance
The proposed standard aims to provide a standardized method for the calculation of the
energy consumption of air filters for general ventilation and a classification system to
enable the user to compare various filtration devices based on their energy efficiency (i.e.
the energy consumed by air filters having approximately the same air cleaning efficiency).
The standard will prescribe the formulae to calculate the energy consumption for air filters
for HVAC applications.
The energy classification will be in classes A through G based on a tabulated criterion of
allowable increase in pressure drop depending on synthetic dust load.
Marking will include the energy consumption class, the filter efficiency class, and the
energy consumption (kWh) on an annual basis.
Cleanroom (HEPA/ULPA), nuclear and military applications are specifically excluded from
This Technical Specification specifies a procedure to use an Alternative Method (AM) for measuring the concentration of sulphur dioxide (SO2) emitted to the atmosphere from industrial stacks and flues. Test laboratories may use this AM instead of the Standard Reference Method (SRM) for SO2, EN 14791. This Technical Specification describes instrumental techniques, including the sampling system and sample gas conditioning system, together with an accompanying method, to determine SO2 in stack and flue gases. The AM described in this standard can be used for periodic monitoring, and for calibrating and verifying Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems (CEMs) permanently installed on a stack, for regulatory or other purposes. When used as a reference method, the test laboratory needs to show that the instrumental systems used within the method meet the performance standards for CEMs in EN 15267-3 at least, and that overall uncertainty of the method is less than the uncertainty budgets specified in applicable EC Directives. This Technical Specification has been developed for compliance assessment monitoring, as well as calibration and verification work, under applicable standards and EC Directives. These include EN 14181 for the quality assurance of CEMs, and regulatory monitoring required by EC Directives for waste incineration, large combustion plant, and integrated pollution prevention and control, for example, Directive 2000/76/EC on the incineration of waste and Directive 2001/80/EC on the limitation of emissions of certain pollutants into the air from large combustion plants. The limit value of EU Directives are expressed in mg.m-3 on dry basis and at the reference conditions of 273 K and 101,3 kPa.
ISO/NP 12249-1 Sustainability of particulate air filters for general ventilation - Part 1: Method of life cycle cost calculation
Method of Calculation of Life Cycle Cost for Air Cleaning Devices – The primary purpose of using air filters in the HVAC systems of inhabited buildings is to filter the supply air thus making it clean and of a quality to be inhaled without risk to public health. The secondary purpose is to
keep the ventilation system clean and working efficiently.
The use of air filters in mechanical air systems requires energy and carries a cost penalty.
Life Cycle Cost (LCC) analysis gives the means to optimise filter selection on cost once the particulate efficiency or grade selection has been made.
This standard specifies:
a: the algebraic model used for evaluating the LCC.
b: the principles to be followed when evaluating the model parameters.
c: how the values for LCC can be used to optimise system design.
Construction products - Assessment of release of dangerous substances - Guidance on evaluation of conformity
This Technical Report provides guidance to Technical Committees on the evaluation of conformity of test results with regard to dangerous substances from or in construction products. Where further testing is required, methods for assessing whether the product conforms to the information provided on the potential release of dangerous substances is described and justified. The Technical Report also describes the conditions and assumptions under which the proposals are given.
Construction products - Assessment of release of dangerous substances - Measurement of activity concentrations of gamma radiation
This TS specifies a method for the determination of the natural radioactivity of construction products using semiconductor gamma-ray spectrometry. The standard includes sampling, sample preparation, preparation of counting samples, performing the test including energy calibration and calibration of counting efficiency, determination of counting efficiency, recording and analysis of the spectrum and calculation of the activities of the radionuclides radium-226, radium-228, thorium-228 and potassium-40 and, finally, processing the results.
A common language for standards, disclosed to a wide audience and referring only to the operational protocols and to their outcomes, is needed both for a consistent set of standards and the connection with the scientific literature. This glossary will take into account existing glossary of terms used in photocatalysis and photochemistry. Because in photocatalysis numerous properties are difficult to be evaluated, it is strongly recommended in standard to avoid reporting properties depending on number of actives sites, the mechanisms of adsorption or kinetic mechanisms of photocatalytic reactions. For the same reason instead of the quantum yield and related quantities it is easier report the photonic efficiency.
Most of the definitions reported in this TS are a sub-set of the IUPAC definitions in photocatalysis and radiocatalysis . Some other definitions, in particular for the photocatalytic rate and reactors are taken from a dedicated work. The use and many technical specifications on the physical values suggested for irradiation conditions in the standards are reported in a separate Technical Specification. The arrangement of entries is alphabetical, and the criterion adopted some years ago by the IUPAC Physical Organic Chemistry Commission has been followed for the typeface used: italicized words in a definition or following it indicate a relevant cross-reference in the Glossary
This ICT Certification in Action project is a successor to the earlier ICT Certification in Europe project which produced the CEN Workshop Agreement CWA 16052 in July 2009. The main aim of the project has been to support the implementation of that CWA.
The project has created new national landscape maps for Bulgaria, Romania, Spain and the Netherlands, and updated five of the original set, all using the methodology of CWA 16052. These maps continue to be popular and other countries are interested, including from beyond Europe
Model for providing mechanical property data of steels
This European Standard describes the way to satisfy the four following key points:
1) Identification of the scope of each model (applicable steel grades, thickness ranges, etc.).
2) Classification of the model accuracy assessment as acceptable or not (see following items 3 and 4), which determines the relevant characteristics that can be modelled.
3) Demonstration of evidence of the relationship between the process input data of the model and the results provided by the model.
4) Establish the procedure to check the accuracy of the results of the model making reference to physical test results and guarantee the stability of the results thorough an ISO 9000 quality management system.
The correlations between the input data from the process and the results of the model are outside the scope of this standard since these correlations are the core of the model which is based upon the know-how of the steel maker.
Security Requirements for Trustworthy Systems Managing Certificates for Electronic Signatures - Part 3: Cryptographic module for CSP key generation services - Protection profile (CMCKG-PP)
This Protection Profile (PP) defines the security requirements of a Cryptographic Module (CM) used by CSP as part of its trustworthy system to provide Key Generation Services. The Cryptographic Module, which is the Target of Evaluation (TOE), is used for the creation of subscriber private keys, and loading them into Secure Signature Creation Devices (SSCD) as part of a Subscriber Device Provision Service. Such keys are referred to in this PP as Subscriber Signature Creation Data (Subscriber-SCD). A cryptographic module for CSP key generation services is needed particularly for initialisation of SSCD Type 2 .
The TOE may implement additional functions and security requirements, e.g. for CSP Signing Operations. However, these additional functions and security requirements are not subject of this Protection Profile.
This PP is Part 2 extended and Part 3 conformant. The assurance level for this PP is EAL4, augmented with ADV_IMP.2 (implementation of the TSF), AVA_CCA.1 (vulnerability assessment, covert channel analysis) and AVA_VLA.4 (vulnerability assessment, highly resistant). The minimum strength level for the TOE security functions is 'SOF high' (Strength of Functions High).
