These terms are divided into a main part and a complementary
— the main part gives an alphabetical list of the terms with
their definitions and, where appropriate, comments. Definitions of
foreign terms for which the language in question has no equivalents
are given at the end of the main part under their reference
— the complementary section comprises the definitions of terms
necessary to understand the main part.
NOTE The comments are printed in italics in order to
differentiate them from the definitions.
Any term defined in the main part of this European Standard and
used elsewhere in a definition or a comment is printed in capital
The reference numbers given with each term are identical in all
the versions and correspond to the French alphabetical order. In
order to avoid any confusion, the numbers of the terms in the annex
are preceded by the letter A.
