                          10 functions to define the IEC 61439-1&2 standard

                           
                           

                          All the verifications proposed by standard IEC 61439 contribute to the achievement of 3 basic goals and 10 functions:
                          > The 5 Safety functions
                          > The 2 Continuity of Service functions
                          > The 3 Compliance with End-User Requirements functions

                          10 functions to define the new IEC standard 61439-1&2 : the 3 compliance with end-user equipments functions 3 Compliance with End-User Requirements functions
