Portable Chiller Systems Glossary: I
The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is an international organization that prepares and publishes International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies. IEC 60204-1:2016 applies to electrical, electronic and programmable electronic equipment and systems, as well as to machines not portable by hand while working, including groups of machines working together in a coordinated manner, making it very relevant to the design and manufacture of Chiller Systems.
IEEE is a grouping of Electrical Standards applicable to the design, manufacture and documentation of state-of-the-art Chiller Equipment. These standards are set out by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Standards Association, developed from the consensus of its voting industry-representative and scientific members worldwide.
ISO is one of the many Industry standards applicable to the design, manufacture and documentation of state-of-the-art Chiller Equipment. ISO 9001:2015 is an internationally recognized document produced and maintained by the International Organization for Standardization, which defines and promotes worldwide proprietary, industrial and commercial standards.
The International Traffic in Arms Regulations or 'ITAR', implements the Arms Export Control Act (AECA), which gives the US Department of State oversight and control of the export and temporary import of defense articles and services designated by the Act. Most military development and equipment contracts, including the manufacture of chillers destined to be used in such research and development, are governed by ITAR.
