TIA/EIA Engineering Standards and Publications are designed to serve the public interest through eliminating misunderstandings between manufacturers and purchasers,facilitating interchangeability and improvement of products, and assisting the purchaser in selecting and obtaining with minimum delay the proper product for his particular need. Existence of such Standards and Publications shall not in any respect preclude any member or nonmember of TIA/EIA from manufacturing or selling products not conforming to such Standards and Publications, nor shall the existenceof such Standards and Publications preclude their voluntary use by those other than TIA/EIA members, whether the standard is used either domestically or internationally. Standards, Publications and Bulletins are adopted by TIA/EIA in accordance with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) patent policy. By such action, TIA/EIA does not assume any liability to any patent owner, nor does itassume any obligation whatever to parties adopting the Standard, Publication or Bulletin. Technical Bulletins are distinguished from TIA/EIA Standards and Interim Standards, in that they contain a compilation of engineering data or information useful to the technical community, and represent approaches to good engineering practices that are suggested by the formulating committee. This Bulletin isnot intended to preclude or discourage other approaches that similarly represent good engineering practice, or that may be acceptable to, or have been accepted by, appropriate bodies. Parties who wish to bring other approaches to the attention of the formulating committee to be considered for inclusion in future revisions of this Bulletin are encouraged to do so. It is the intention of theformulating committee to revise and update this Bulletin from time to time as may be occasioned by changes in technology, industry practice, or government regulations, or for other appropriate reasons.
