DIN EN 16602-70-22
Space product assurance - Control of limited shelf-life materials; English version EN 16602-70-22:2014
Raumfahrtproduktsicherung - Kontrolle von Materialien mit begrenzter Lagerfähigkeit; Englische Fassung EN 16602-70-22:2014
Several classes of materials depend on a chemical reaction for their application and their final properties are sensitive to the exact composition of the reactants. The final properties vary with the reactants’ age and storage condition. This standard defines the requirements for the identification, handling, storage and control of limited shelf life materials employed in the fabrication of spacecraft and associated equipment. This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristic and constrains of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00. This document (DIN EN 16602-70-22:2014) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/CLC/TC 5 "Space", the secretariat of which is held by DIN (Germany). This document supersedes DIN EN 14089:2003-03. This document has been developed to cover specifically space systems and has therefore precedence over any EN covering the same scope but with a wider domain of applicability (for example: aerospace). The responsible German body involved in its preparation is Working Committee NA 131-10-01 AA "Interoperabilität von Informations-, Kommunikations- und Navigationssystemen" ("Interoperability of information, communication and navigation systems") at the DIN Standards Committee Aerospace (NL).
