This European Standard provides the basic requirements of sensors and networks collecting accurate data of the relevant parameters informing in real-time about lightning tracking and range. It describes the application of the data collected by these sensors and networks in the form of warnings and historical data. This European Standard applies to the use of information from thunderstorm warning systems (which are systems or equipment which provide real-time information) on atmospheric electrical activity in order to monitor for preventive means. The scope of this document is providing: - a general description of the available lightning and storm electrification hazard warning systems; - a classification of thunderstorm detection devices and properties; - guidelines for alarming methods; - a procedure to determine the thunderstorm information usefulness; - some examples of possible preventive actions (only for information).
