Folks? Who Has the Biggest Brain?
Soooo, who knows how to get free .pdf copies of these then:
EN 3155 -015
EN 3155 -016
Those are, I think, from ETSI? I can never manage to navigate their website.
BS 6657/1991....and for added geekiness, the 06/30/03 revision.
Hopefully that last will be available in .pdf in a form that can be saved rather than copy protected. So who is at a university type computer which links into these databases?

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Folks? Who Has the Biggest Brain?:
Not only am I shocked, shocked etc. at this attempt to incite infringement of copyright (soon to be made a criminal offence, thanks to the ever-vigilant intellectual property gnomes of the European Commission), but the title of the standard itself -- "Guide to prevention of inadvertent initiation of electro-explosive devices by radio-frequency radiation" -- strongly suggests to me that it might be information of a character likely to be of use to A TERRORIST and therefore supplying another person with a copy of it could land me in the slammer. Also I don't actually have access to the British Standards library.

EN-blah is ASD-STAN not ETSI. Looks like the buggers want money though, unliek ETSI which gives them away free.
BTW the Standard 15 sez that it works with 3155-014 not 3155-016
This standard specifies the required characteristics, tests and tooling applicable to female electrical contacts 015, type A, crimp, class S, used in elements of connection according to EN 3155-002. It shall be used together with EN 3155-001. The associated male contacts are defined in EN 3155-014.

Are we talking elecronic detonators here, by any chance?
Tim adds: Nah, I’ve just got to get together a set of docs for some friends in Russia. All legit.

I am afraid that there is some confusion here.
First, I would like to rectify that, the title of these standards is not "Guide to prevention of inadvertent initiation of electro-explosive devices by radio-frequency radiation" but "Electrical contacts used in elements of connection - Part 015: Contacts, electrical, female, type A, crimp, class S - Product standard”. So not alarm about terrorism here please!
Secondly, those EN standards are not available from the ASD-STAN online store but obtainable from CEN (European Committee for Standardisation) Members. ASD-STAN is an industry-led standards development organisation which develops Aerospace standards, called prEN, and then submits those documents to CEN for transformation into EN standards.
Once those standards have been published as "EN's", the rights of distribution are given to the CEN Members, e.g. BSI for the UK.
And for the record, ETSI is our subcontractor for Space standards and is not involved in this case.
Finally, it is very wrong to try to get free copies of documents that are restricted of use and rightly protected by copyrights. And even more wrong to incite others in doing so.
