Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 9995-4-04 (adoption of ISO/IEC 9995-4:2002).
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada.
Within the general scope described in ISO/IEC 9995-1, this part of ISO/IEC 9995 specifies the numeric section of a keyboard and the division of that section into zones. It specifies the arrangement, the number, and the location of the keys in the numeric zone ZN0 and in the function zones ZN1 to ZN6 of the numeric section, as well as the allocation of functions to the keys.
The numeric zone ZN0 is to be used in keyboards for applications such as text and data processing, general office environment, banking, point of sales (POS), telematic services, telephony apparatus, home electronic systems, numerical control of machinery and equipment, input of personal identification number (PIN), etc.
The function zone ZN1 is to be used in keyboards for applications such as data entry, text and data processing, general office environment, etc.
NOTE Certain of these applications are under the responsibility of the ITU-T.
