Die IEC/IEEE 82079-1 ist die wichtigste Norm für die Erstellung aller Arten von Nutzungsinformationen – von der Farbdose bis zur Industrieanlage. Der neue Praxisleitfaden erläutert praxisnah die zentralen Anforderungen der grundlegend überarbeiteten Norm. Er enthält zudem alle wichtigen Neuerungen sowie in der Printversion den englischsprachigen Text der Norm.

Über das Buch

IEC/IEEE 82079-1 is of excelling importance for the field of technical communication. Since its publication in 2012, it defines the general principles and requirements for instructions for use in all industry branches.

In a five-year effort the standard has been substantially revised by an international work group formed by 21 experts from nine countries.

This implementation guide focuses on the practical application of the standard and in this effort largely follows the improved 
structure of the standard: All chapters r eferring to specific requirements of the standard include a table presenting the “mandatory requirements” of the respective section. The following subchapters then discuss the requirements and their implementation, including practical e xamples.

The practical implementation guide thus is ideally suited to understanding the requirements set forth in the standard and their implementation. Thanks to its structure following that of the standard, it can also be used as a reference.
