Revision of the Drawing Guideline

Work commenced in 1978 with the first meeting at the DIN office in Cologne. In May 1980, the first issue of the “FSF Drawing Guideline - Drawing Creation and Microfilming for Railway Vehicles (Z+M)”, today’s “FSF Guideline for the Creation of Technical Documentation”, was published as a loose-leaf collection. The work results are a joint effort of the railway industry and interested parties and are published through regular update deliveries. At the same time, the effects of technical change are taken into account by consensus.
