PNE - PNE standards have been created and approved by energy companies, ČEPS, or other institutes even beyond the section of power engineering. These standards deal with issues of distribution and transfer of electric power and they are not intended for power production. During fifteen-year period of their existence PNE standards have worked very well and they properly fill the gaps in ČSN standards for special use within power engineering.
TPG - Technical regulations are normative documents accepted at the branch level by an independent approval committee, which represents the involved authorities and institutions. They have been elaborated in co-operation with the involved parties through consultations and consensus procedures and since their approvals the above-mentioned authorities and institutions consider them to be acknowledged technical regulations, expressing status of engineering according to provisions of ČSN EN 45020.
TIN - technical instructions. This is a normative document dealing with specific technical and organizational measures and procedures within gas industry, following the issued ČSN, TPG a TD; approved by an expert committee.
TPP - Die Definition TPP basiert auf den Bestimmungen der technischen Norm STN EN 45020 – Normalisierung und zusammenhängende Aktivitäten. Allgemeines Wörterbuch. Diese Norm wurde ins System der STN-Normen durch die Übersetzung in die slowakische Sprache im Mai 2007 einbezogen. Die technische Regel TPP stellt – im Sinne STN EN 45020 – ein normatives Dokument dar, das aufgrund der Vereinbarung erstellt und durch die unabhängige Abstimmungskommission mir der Vertretung der zuständigen Staatsorgane und –organisationen auf der Ebene der Branchen angenommen wurde. Dieses normative Dokument wurde aufgrund der Verhandlungen sowie der Vereinbarung der interessierten Parteien erarbeitet. Seit der Abstimmung wird dieses Dokument durch diese Organe und Organisationen für die anerkannte technische Regel gehalten, die den Zustand der Technik gem.den Bestimmungen 1.5 und 3.1 STN EN 45020 darstellt.
ASTM - ASTM International is one of the largest voluntary standards development organizations in the world-a trusted source for technical standards for materials, products, systems, and services. Known for their high technical quality and market relevancy, ASTM International standards have an important role in the information infrastructure that guides design, manufacturing and trade in the global economy. ASTM issues standards dealing with metals, combustibility, chemical products, lubricants, fossil fuels, textiles, paints, rubber, piping, forensic sciences, electronics, power engineering, medical appliances and numerous further topics.
ASME helps the global engineering community develop solutions to real world challenges. Founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME is a not-for-profit professional organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering disciplines, while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. ASME codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education and professional development programs provide a foundation for advancing technical knowledge and a safer world.
SAE - SAE International is a global association of more than 128,000 engineers and related technical experts in the aerospace, automotive and commercial-vehicle industries. SAE International´s core competencies are life-long learning and voluntary consensus standards development. SAE International´s charitable arm is the SAE Foundation, which supports many programs, including A World In Motion® and the Collegiate Design Series.
For nearly 100 years, Honeywell’s UOP has been the leading international supplier and licensor for the petroleum refining, gas processing, petrochemical production and major manufacturing industries. As a respected pioneer, it is responsible for developing and implementing some of the most useful, original technologies in the world. Today more than 60 percent of the world’s gasoline and 85 percent of biodegradable detergents are made using UOP technology. UOP has roots dating back to 1914. Their extensive patent portfolio began when revolutionary inventor Jesse A. Dubbs commercialized the Dubbs thermal cracking process, setting the technological foundation for today’s modern refining industry.
VDA - The German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) consists of about 600 member companies, who have come together to research and produce clean and safe auto-mobility for the future. In the country that is known for its successful invention of both automobiles and trucks, the VDA represents the automotive manufactures and supply companies to ensure the continued competitive utilization of their experience and skills. The cooperation between manufactures and suppliers in the VDA is unique in the world of motoring.
BSi - BSI British Standards is the UK´s National Standards Body (NSB) and was the world´s first. It represents UK economic and social interests across all of the European and international standards organizations and through the development of business information solutions for British organizations of all sizes and sectors. BSI British Standards works with manufacturing and service industries, businesses, governments and consumers to facilitate the production of British, European and international standards. Part of BSI Group, BSI British Standards has a close working relationship with the UK government, primarily through the Department for Innovation, University and Skills (DIUS).
The Spanish national UNE standards are published by AENOR, which is an organisation dedicated to the development of national standardisation and certification in all industrial and service sectors. Its aim is to contribute to the improvement in quality and competitiveness of companies, and to environmental protection. As AENOR is an association, any public or private organisations and natural or legal persons who express an interest in developing standardisation and certification activities may become AENOR members.
GOST - Gosudarstvennye Standarty State Standard Gosstandart of Russia (GOST) standards cover over 20 industries including Petroleum, Chemical, Mining & Mineral Resources, Power & Electrical Equipment, and Oil & Gas products. Originally chartered under the USSR, GOST was responsible for the development and implementation of the State policy in the field of standardization. This body of standards has been adopted by the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and is administered by the Euro-Asian Council of Standardization, Metrology, and Certification (EASC).
GB standards are the Chinese national standards issued by the Standardization Administration of China (SAC). Commonly referred to as GB Standards , Chinese national standards are applied nationwide across China and set out unified product requirements for product safety and quality. GB Standards are often harmonised with or developed according to international standards at ISO, IEC or other international level. Although largely harmonised, GB Standards can deviate from the international standard. Approximately 15% of all GB standards are mandatory and can be identified by the standards prefix GB followed by the standards code:
GB - Mandatory national standards
GB/T - Voluntary national standards
GB/Z - National guiding technical document
IEC - The IEC is the world`s leading organization that prepares and publishes International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies — collectively known as "electrotechnology". Wherever you find electricity and electronics, you find the IEC supporting safety and performance, the environment, electrical energy efficiency and renewable energies. The IEC also manages conformity assessment systems that certify that equipment, systems or components conform to its International Standards.
UIC - International Union of Railways (in French "Union Internationale des Chemins de fer") is a global company that coordinates development and progress of railway transport in all the member countries.
