d) specifies a classification system, based upon the key criteria of "availability", "security" and "energy-efficiency" over the planned lifetime of the data centre, for the provision of effective facilities and infrastructure;
e) describes the general design principles for data centres upon which the requirements of the ISO/IEC TS 22237 series are based including symbols, labels, coding in drawings, quality assurance and education.
The following topics are outside of the scope of the ISO/IEC TS 22237 series:
1) the selection of information technology and network telecommunications equipment, software and associated configuration issues;
