Understanding the various document numbering schema from Standards Developing Organizations (SDO’s) can be challenging for the beginning Standards Specialist.
In reviewing the standards available for Electronic Discharge Control, standards from the ESD Association top the list. What are the different designations for these ESD standards and what do they mean? Here’s the definitions:
- Standard (S): A precise statement of a set of requirements to be satisfied by a material, product, system or process that also specifies the procedures for determining whether each of the requirements is satisfied.
- Standard Test Method (STM): A definitive procedure for the identification, measurement and evaluation of one or more qualities, characteristics or properties of a material, product, system or process that yield a reproducible test result.
- Standard Practice (SP): A procedure for performing one or more operations or functions that may or may not yield a test result. Note, if a test result is obtained it is not reproducible.
- Technical Report (TR): A collection of technical data or test results published as an informational reference on a specific material, product, system or process.
