International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies

TC 101



TC 101 Scope

TC 101

Standardization in the field of electrostatics to provide general guidance on

- test methods to evaluate the generation, retention and dissipation of electrostatic charges;

- ascertaining the effect of electrostatic discharges;

- methods of simulation of electrostatic phenomena for testing purposes;

- requirements for design and implementation of handling areas or procedures, equipment, and materials used to reduce or eliminate electrostatic hazards or undesirable effects.

Limitations and exclusions:

The simulation of electrostatic discharges applied to powered electric and electronic equipment,

systems and installations which is covered by TC 77.

Horizontal safety function:

To specify methods of test and relevant equipment to evaluate generation, retention and dissipation of electrostatic charges on materials.
