CSA ISO/IEC 30129:20
Information technology — Telecommunications bonding networks for buildings and other structures (Adopted ISO/IEC 30129:2015, first edition, 2015-10)
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 SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) 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 has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This International Standard specifies requirements and recommendations for the design and installation of connections (bonds) between various electrically conductive elements in buildings and other structures, during their construction or refurbishment, in which information technology (IT) and, more generally, telecommunications equipment is intended to be installed in order to
a) minimise the risk to the correct function of that equipment and interconnecting cabling from electrical hazards,
b) provide the telecommunications installation with a reliable signal reference – which may improve immunity from electromagnetic interference (EMI).
The requirements of this International Standard are applicable to the buildings and other structures within premises addressed by ISO/IEC 14763-2 (e.g. residential, office, industrial and data centres) but information given in this International Standard may be of assistance for other types of buildings and structures.
NOTE Telecommunications centres (operator buildings) are addressed by ITU-T K.27.
This International Standard does not apply to power supply distribution of voltages over AC 1 000 V.
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements and safety requirements for power supply installation are outside the scope of this International Standard and are covered by other standards and regulations. However, information given in this International Standard may be of assistance in meeting the requirements of these standards and regulations.
