1.2.2 Cross-Reference of Standards. Cross-reference of standards in text with or without a date following the stan- dard designator shall be interpreted as follows:
(a) Reference to other ASME Y14 standards in the text without a date following the standard designator indicates that the issue of the standard identified in the References section (para. 1.5) shall be used to meet the requirement.
(b) Reference to other ASME Y14 standards in the text with a date following the standard designator indicates that only that edition of the standard shall be used to meet the requirement.
1.2.3 Invocation of Referenced Standards. The following examples define the invocation of a standard when specified in the References section (para. 1.5) and referenced in the text of this Standard:
(a) When a referenced standard is cited in the text with no limitations to a specific subject or paragraph(s) of the standard, the entire standard is invoked. For example, “Dimensioning and tolerancing shall be in accordance with ASME Y14.5” is invoking the complete standard because the subject of the standard is dimensioning and tolerancing and no specific subject or paragraph(s) within the standard are invoked.
(b) When a referenced standard is cited in the text with limitations to a specific subject or paragraph(s) of the standard, only the paragraph(s) on that subject are invoked. For example, “Assign part or identifying numbers in accordance with ASME Y14.100” is invoking only the paragraph(s) on part or identifying numbers because the subject of the standard is engineering drawing practices and part or identifying numbers is a specific subject within the standard.
(c) When a referenced standard is cited in the text without an invoking statement such as “in accordance with,” the standard is for guidance only. For example,“For gaging principles, see ASME Y14.43” is only for guidance and no portion of the standard is invoked.
1.2.4 Parentheses Following a Definition. When a definition is followed by a standard referenced in parentheses, the standard referenced in parentheses is the source for the definition.
1.2.5 Notes. Notes depicted in this Standard in ALL UPPERCASE letters are intended to reflect actual product definition data. Notes depicted in initial uppercase or in lowercase letters are to be considered supporting data to the contents of this Standard and are not intended for literal entry into product definition data. A statement requiring the addition of a note with the qualifier “such as” is a requirement to add a note, and the content of the note is allowed to vary to suit the application.
