 Fundamental goal of the IEC – Promote
international cooperation and trade through
the development of IEC standards
 Regional conditions of an essential and
permanent nature to be addressed during the
development or revision of a standard
 Procedure by which essential differences in
requirements may be included – on an
equivalent basis – as normative requirements
 Essential requirements due to legal and
regulatory provisions included in an
informative annex
Global Relevance – Principles
 EDR – Essential Difference in Requirements
 Technical infrastructures or climatic differences
 Significant market share
 Normative part of document
 Regulatory requirements
 Non-permanent nature
 Informative annex
 TC/SCs encouraged to use existing solutions
 EDR solution when no consensus possible
Existing solutions
2.2.3 Procedure
a) Figure 2 shows the luminance processing circuitry for the
signal which is a dropout generator circuit.
b) Input a white signal of 50 % (grey) (0,357 Vp-p for NTSC
and 0,350 Vp-p for PAL/SECAM) to the video signal input
for the dropout generator circuit. Also supply a horizontal
sync signal and a vertical sync signal to the horizontal and
vertical sync signal inputs of the dropout generator circuit.
c) Do not record chrominance or hi-fi audio signal.
d) Figure 3 also shows the level adjustment system of the
dropout in the Y-FM recording signal which is shown in
figure 4.
Basic principles
 EDR based on
 differences in technical infrastructures
 differences in climatic conditions
 EDR submitted to the relevant TC/SC by the
National Committee for consideration
Basic principles
 EDR does not mean different side-by-side
 Procedure of including EDR applied only in
those cases where the TC/SC agrees on
substantial degree of harmonisation with other
requirements in standard
Implementation procedure
 Proposal for EDR, including justification,
endorsed by the relevant NC
 Proposal for EDR includes technical and
market justification
 Indicate how any resulting IEC standard will
be treated nationally
 EDR submitted at the earliest stage (NP) but
not later than the end of the CD stage
Implementation procedure
 EDR shall be included in CDV and FDIS
 IPR provisions have to be applied
 Inclusion of an EDR may not itself be the
reason for a negative vote by NCs
 Negative votes related to EDR at any stage
(NP, CDV, FDIS) accompanied by a
technical/market justification
Legal & regulatory requirements
 Different requirements due to legal and
regulatory provisions included in informative
 Annex indicates
 law/regulation reference
 technical rationale
 body responsible for the requirement
 Annex referenced in main body of standard
 SMB will create system for monitoring
inclusion of EDR and legal provisions in IEC
 Periodic report to be provided and be basis for
review of the procedure after 2 years
(extended for additional year)
 SMB Directive Maintenance Team will review
the existing Directives in order to
accommodate procedure
Technical Infrastructure
 The SMB decided not to provide a definition
for “technical infrastructure” and to refer to
the dictionary definition …
Technical Infrastructure
 Compact Oxford English
the basic physical and organizational structures (e.g.
buildings, roads, power supplies) needed for the
operation of a society or enterprise
 Chambers
1 the basic inner structure of a society, organization, or
2 the permanent services and equipment, eg the roads,
railways, bridges, factories and schools, needed for a
country to be able to function properly.
3 the permanent services and equipment, eg roads,
railways and bridges, needed for military purposes.
Technical Infrastructure
 Websters
1 : the underlying foundation or basic framework (as of a
system or organization)
2 : the permanent installations required for military
3 : the system of public works of a country, state, or
region; also : the resources (as personnel, buildings, or
equipment) required for an activity
