English translation:Tolerance range adjacent to the base line
Explanation:
One of the main concepts of the ISO tolerance system is the Base Line, which is zero.
The suggested translations, while seemingly correct, do not convey the actual meaning (they also have a hint of tautology).
Tolerance ranges can be on either side of the base line:
a) adjacent
b) away from it or
c) across it

unilateral tolerance zone


Explanation:
The fellow with the explanation about the base line is correct. I believe unilateral is a more economical way of saying that. It is like a tolerance of + 3 inches as opposed to plus or minus 3 inches.
