This standard describes the general requirements for functionalities of electronic access control systems (EACS) for use in security applications. An electronic access control system consists of one or more components that when interconnected meet the functionality criteria stated in this standard. This standard defines different security grades and the functionalities of the access control system associated with each of these grades. It includes also the minimum environmental and EMC compliance criteria as applicable for components of the electronic access control system in every grade. This standard specifies the minimum functionality, performance requirements and test methods for electronic access control systems and components used for physical access (entry and exit) in and around buildings and protected areas. It does not include requirements for access point actuators and sensors. The design, planning, installation, operation, and maintenance are part of the application guidelines in IEC 60839-11-2. The risk analysis is not part of this standard and the risk levels are for informational purposes only. The responsible committee is DKE/UK 713.1 "Gefahrenmelde- und Überwachungsanlagen" ("Alarm and surveillance systems") of the DKE (German Commission for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies) at DIN and VDE.
