This Standard has been cancelled and replaced by ECSS-Q-ST-40-12C (31 July 2008).
This standard is one of the series of ECSS Standards intended to be applied together for the management, engineering and product assurance in space projects and applications. ECSS is a cooperative effort of the European Space Agency, National Space Agencies and European industry associations for the purpose of developing and maintaining common standards.
It is ECSS policy that ECSS Standards shall not duplicate the standards established by international standards organizations. When, as in this case, an existing international standard is considered adequate for the purpose of ECSS, it may be adopted as an ECSS Standard.
This adoption notice has been prepared by the ECSS Working Group Q-40-12, reviewed by the ECSS Technical Panel and approved by the ECSS Steering Board on 14 October 1997.
