There are two types of IEC standards for MT/MPO measurements using interferometry.

The first is the “Measurement Standard” and its primary purpose is to try and ensure that different instruments yield the same measurement results.  This standard includes information on measurement techniques, measurement parameters, fitting regions, reference points, calculations and in some cases the algorithms used to define each parameter.  This is a priority standard and its number is 61300-3-30.

The second is “Performance or Interface Standards” which relate to specific connector styles or groups. For example, there might be one for MT connectors and another for angled MT connectors. These documents refer to 61300-3-30 as the measurement technique and then continue to elaborate on specific parameters to be measured, ferrule dimensions, tolerances and pass/fail limits. These documents are aimed more towards companies manufacturing, polishing or purchasing connectors.
