Two ISO/IEC standards that are
relevant to OOR are out for ballot. I have volunteered to consolidate comments
for submission to the US National Body (INCITS L8) for consideration.
A copy of Committee Draft 2 of ISO/IEC
11179 Part 3 is available at:
For .doc - http://www.jtc1sc32.org/doc/N1851-1900/32N1851B-ballot_for_CD2_11179-3.doc
For .pdf - http://www.jtc1sc32.org/doc/N1851-1900/32N1851Ta-text_for_ballot-CD2_11179-3.pdf
Another standard that is relevant
to OOR is ISO/IEC 19763. I will also consolidate comments for 19763 Part 3.
The 19763 Part 3 documents is at:
Some of you may belong to groups
that have formal liaison with ISO/IEC SC 32 (or /WG 2) and could submit
comments directly through formal liaison channels. Others may want to send
comments to me for consolidation and forwarding to L8. If you know of others
who are interested in reviewing and commenting on the documents, please let me
Note that this informal collection
of comments is distinct from the establishment of a US National Body position
and comments. That will be done in a meeting and/or ballot of L8 members. Any
input that I receive will be input to the formal L8 discussion.
Attached to this message are
templates for the comments, based on the ISO comment template. This should help
to collect the essential information. Most important is to specify where in the
document a comment refers to, then state the problem and a suggested solution.
I need any comments that you may
have by the end of April, 2009.
Thanks for your interest.
