This document specifies the requirements and statements applicable to materials, mechanical parts and processes to satisfy the mission performance requirements. This document also specifies the documentation requirements and the procedures relevant to obtaining approval for the use of materials, mechanical parts and processes in the fabrication of space systems and associated equipment. The provisions of this document apply to all actors involved at all levels in the production of space systems. These can include manned and unmanned spacecraft, launchers, satellites, payloads, experiments, electrical ground support equipment, mechanical ground support equipment, and their corresponding organizations. This document may be tailored for the specific characteristics and constraints of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00. This document has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/CLC/TC 5 "Space", the secretariat of which is held by DIN. This document has been prepared specifically to deal with space systems and therefore takes precedence over any European Standard, as it has the same scope but a wider scope (for example aerospace). The responsible German standardization committee is Working Committee NA 131-06-02 AA "Interoperabilität von Informations-, Kommunikations- und Navigationssystemen" ("Interoperability of information, communication and navigation systems") at DIN Standards Committee Aerospace (NL).
