Standards Interpretations

Answering questions that may arise related to the meaning of portions of an IEEE standard concerning specific applications.


Interpretations explain and clarify the intent of the standard; they do not constitute an alteration to the original standard or supply consulting information. New requirements cannot be made to fit situations not yet covered in a standard; new requirements are addressed through standard revisions or amendments.
