This part of IEC 62676 specifies the minimum requirements and gives recommendations for
Video Surveillance Systems (VSS), so far called CCTV, installed for security applications.
This Standard specifies the minimum performance requirements and functional requirements
to be agreed on between customer, law-enforcement where applicable and supplier in the
operational requirement, but does not include requirements for design, planning, installation,
testing, operation or maintenance. This standard excludes installation of remotely monitored
detector activated VSSs.
This IEC Standard also applies to VSS sharing means of detection, triggering,
interconnection, control, communication and power supplies with other applications. The
operation of a VSS is not be adversely influenced by other applications.
Requirements are specified for VSS components where the relevant environment is classified.
This classification describes the environment in which the VSS component may be expected
to operate as designed. When the requirements of the four environmental classes are
inadequate, due to the extreme conditions experienced in certain geographic locations,
special national conditions may be applied (see Annex A).
