Value-added products

 

IEC value-added products focus on the changes contained in the new edition of a Publication. They give customers an instant and complete view of those changes along with additional information.

 

At present time, this category of Value-Added Products includes the Redline versions, Commented versions and Extended version.


The designation of a Redline or Commented version is identical to that of its base publication, with the addition of the suffix RLV for Redline and CMV for Commented version. Product’s file also bears a dedicated watermark.

 

 

Redline version (RLV)

 

IEC Standards+ Redline version is a package which includes both the new edition of a Publication and its Redline version. The Redline version clearly highlights all the changes between the new and the previous edition of a Publication, by using the track changes functionality of Microsoft ® Word: additions and deletions are displayed in red, with deletions being struck through.

 

Maintenance - A Redline version is automatically withdrawn when the corresponding base publication is withdrawn.

 

Remark - The development of a Redline version is not systematic. Criteria are the popularity of the Publication and the clear structure of the changes. If the changes are too much interwoven into the content, a Redline version may be unreadable and thus, lose the benefit of a clear and quick identification of the changes.

 

Commented version (CMV)

 

IEC Standards+ Commented version is the only Product where the consensus-based content of a Publication is enriched with technical information. It is made of a Redline version with highlighted areas where a leading expert has added significant and extensive comments on changes in the form of pop-up windows and attachments. The summary of comments and attachments is also provided at the end of the document.

 

Additionally, the Commented version is enabled for commenting and reviewing in Adobe® Reader® by customers.

 

Maintenance - A Commented version is automatically withdrawn when the corresponding base publication is withdrawn.

 

Remark - In order for customers to take full benefit from functionalities provided by a Commented version, it is available in electronic format only.

 

Extended version (EXV)

 

We currently have the following:

IEC 61204-7:2016 EXV which includes the provisions of the general rules dealt with in IEC 62477-1:2012. 

 

The Extended version is not an official IEC Standard. Only the current versions of the related standards are to be considered the official documents.

 

Maintenance - An Extended version is automatically withdrawn when the corresponding base publication is withdrawn.
