ISO 10254:2016 defines the terms relating to air cargo and aircraft ground equipment, as used in the other International Standards in these areas.
NOTE The term "weight" is used throughout ISO 10254:2016 instead of the correct technical term "mass", in order to conform to current commercial usage.
The terms and abridged definitions of ISO 10254:2016 are primarily intended to provide uniform understanding of the International Standards prepared by TC20/SC9. However, it is intended that they be used in any other documents, manuals and standards in the areas of air cargo and airport ground equipment.
More detailed definitions are provided when needed in the "Terms and definitions" clause of the specific International Standards prepared by TC20/SC9.
The terms are listed in alphabetic sequence in the English language version. An index allows the identification of terms from their French or German expressions.
