    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    ISO 17724:2003 defines terms relating to graphical symbols, principally symbols for public information and use on equipment and safety signs. It does not include terms related to graphical symbols for diagrams [technical product documentation (tpd) symbols].

    The definitions are intended to serve as a basis for consideration by those concerned with producing new, or revising existing standards.
