UNE 21123


Explanation:
It's a title. I don't think you should attempt to look for an equivalent or to translate it.

"UNE 21123"


Explanation:
"UNE 21123" is a Spanish standard. Therefore it will translate as the same.
UNE stands for
Una
Norma
Española

(One Spanish Standard)

similar to, for example, API, ASTME, ASME, DIN or any other standards.

Originally, UNE was intended to be as the equivalent to DIN standard. Now that we are merging into the CEE, I guess that we will unify all the standards into a single European standard.

Probably UNE 21123 is equivalent to other international standards, but being a translation, don't try to find an equivalent to replace it, but rather make a note or reference to it.
