Question 12/5

Question 12/5 – Guides and terminology on environment and climate change
(Continuation of Question 14/5)

Motivation

The production of K-series recommendations, Handbooks and Directives by Study Group 5 require a large amount of cooperation between other ITU study groups and international bodies, when taking into account the variety of technology to be studied. For the results of Study Group 5 work to be comprehensible to all parties, the terminology used has to be coordinated and unambiguous.

SG 5 has published, as a Guide, an overview of ITU-T documents produced by Study Group 5, which provide information on measures to achieve electromagnetic compatibility for telecommunication equipment and installations. This Question has to maintain updated this Guide.

SG 5 has published the Handbook on “Mitigation measures for telecommunications installations”, which provide information on mitigation measures to achieve electromagnetic compatibility, safety and protection for telecommunication equipment and installations. This Question has to maintain updated this Handbook.

The following documents, in force at the time of approval of this Question, fall under its responsibility: “K-series Terminology”, “Guide to the use of ITU-T Publications produced by Study Group 5 aimed at achieving Electromagnetic Compatibility and Safety” and Handbook on “Mitigation measures for telecommunications installations”.

ITU-T Study Group 5 is now the lead Study Group on Environment and Climate Change. To support this additional activity Question 14/5 needs to establish a similar document set to cover Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and Climate Change (CC).

The following Handbooks, in force at the time of approval of this Question, fall under its responsibility:

  • K-series Terminology,
  • Guide to the use of SG5 publications,
  • Handbook on Mitigation measures for telecommunications installations.

Question

Study items to be considered include, but are not limited to:

  • All terms, definitions, abbreviations, letter symbols and schematic symbols used in the SG 5 Recommendations, Handbooks and Directives harmonized with terminology used by other parties outside of ITU-T Study Group 5;
  • Liaise with other bodies (e.g. IEC) regarding terminology used in the SG 5 Recommendations.

Tasks

Tasks include, but are not limited to:

  • Maintenance and enhancement of the SG 5 Recommendation Terminology;
  • Frequent update of the “Guide to the use of ITU-T Publications produced by Study Group 5 aimed at achieving Electromagnetic Compatibility and Safety”;
  • Update of the Handbook on “Mitigation measures for telecommunications installations”;
  • Use of the ITU-T web site to ensure the high visibility of the SG 5 work results;
  • Harmonize terminology with relevant standards organizations through the editing process, the terminology documents and the ITU Standardization Committee for Vocabulary.

An up-to-date status of work under this Question is contained in the SG 5 work programme (use URL as shown in the table below).
