International Standard 82045 Document management, is a series of standards dealing with different aspects of document managment. Many organisations are today introducing electronic document management systems, and the need for this standard is therefore urgent. The series contains several parts: IEC 82045-1 Document management, Part 1: Principles and methods, and IEC 82045-2 Document management, Part 2: Metadata and information models, are the basic ones.
The series is a common effort between IEC TC3 and ISO TC10. SC8 of the latter TC has developed ISO 82045-5 Document management, Part 5: Application of metadata for the construction and facility management sector.
IEC 61355-1 Classification and designation of documents for plants, systems and equipment - Part 1: Rules and classification tables , is a standard that provides a system for classification and coding of document kinds. The importance of this standard has been increasing with the introduction of Electronic Document Management Systems (EDM, EDMS) since the "document kind" concept supports retrieval in such systems.
This standard is accompanied by IEC 61355 DB - Collection of standardized and established document kinds, providing brief definitions of a set of internationally standardized document kinds, including requirements on the contents of information, references to appropriate sources and the applicable classification in accordance with IEC 61355-1.
IEC 62023 Structuring of technical information and documentation provides the link between plant or product structuring and document management.
IEC/TR 62154 Terminology in the area of information structures, documentation and graphical symbols, is a compilation of terminology relevant for document and documentation management.
