This part of IEC 61753 deals with performance standards for all passive fibre optic products, including connectors, passive optical components, fibre management systems and closures. The IEC 61753 series is published in multiple parts. This Part 1 covers general information on performance standards. It defines those tests and severities which form the performance categories or general operating service environments and identifies those tests which are considered to be product specific. Test and severity details are given in Annex A. Part 1 also includes references, definitions and rules for creating a performance standard, together with informative annexes, such as a description of test sequencing given in Annex B, and other pertinent information. Subsequent parts which form IEC 61753 are known as performance standards and are numbered according to the classification defined in Annex C. These standards contain the minimum test and measurement severities which a specific product must satisfy, in order to be categorized as meeting the requirements for use in a particular service environment. A product performance standard will contain a combination of those tests and measurements which are common to all passive fibre optic products, for a particular service environment or performance category, and those which are considered specific to that particular product in that environment.
