Standardization of:

  • specifications relating to specialised mining machinery and equipment used in opencast mines (e.g. conveyors, high wall miners, rock drill rigs and continuous surface miners) and all underground mining machinery and equipment for the extraction of solid mineral substances, but excluding the preparation and processing of the minerals;
  • recommended practice in the presentation of plans and drawings used in mine surveying;
  • methods of calculation of mineral reserves;
  • mine reclamation management;
  • design of structures for mining industry.


  • standardization of equipment and protective systems to be used in explosive atmospheres (dealt with by IEC/TC 31);
  • earth-moving machinery dealt with by ISO/TC 127.
