This document specifies rules for the structure and drafting of documents intended to become standards, Technical Specifications or Publicly Available Specifications. Publicly Available Specifications do not exist in CEN/CENELEC. As far as practicable, these rules also apply to documents intended to become Technical Reports or Guides. All these document types are referred to collectively hereinafter as documents, unless otherwise necessary. DIN 820-2 contains the 5. edition of the ISO/IEC Directives - Part 2:2004, which has been adopted with European amendments as CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations - Part 3 in 2006, as well as a (normative) National Annex NA with additional national regulations.
