Resolution 99‑C: Extension of Trial Period for Normative Referencing of Specifications Other Than International Standards
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC22 approves document SC22 N3008 as its response to the request from ISO/IEC JTC 1 for comments on extending the trial period for normative referencing of specifications other than International Standards and directs the SC22 Secretariat to forward this response to ISO/IEC JTC 1.

its response to the request from ISO/IEC JTC 1 for contributions detailing

Recognizing that Disposition of Comments Reports should adequately address the resolution of comments provided with votes on SC22 and JTC 1 ballots;
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC22 reminds its Working Groups of the requirements in the JTC 1 Directives on the preparation of Disposition of Comments Reports, in particular that:
1) Comments which are not accepted must be accompanied by the rationale for non-acceptance; and
2) Comments which are accepted "in principle" (i.e., where the exact wording of the suggestion is not incorporated) should be accompanied by either the exact wording which was used to satisfy the comment or a rationale sufficient to ensure that the balloter can understand the changes that are being made based on the comment.
Recognizing that additional time and expense may be incurred when dealing with Final CD ballots;
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC22 provides the following guidance to its Working Groups when deciding whether to submit a document for CD or FCD ballot:
1) Until there is wide acceptance that all major technical issues have been resolved, a document should not be forwarded for FCD ballot.
2) Only documents which have a high probability of being progressed to FDIS processing on the next ballot, should be brought forward for FCD ballot.
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC22 approves the request from the
ballot resolution group for DIS 16509 (Year 2000 Terminology) that ISO/IEC
16509 be made freely available and directs the SC22 Secretariat to immediately

Elementary Numeric Functions ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC22 notes that while project JTC
1.22.34 has exceeded the statutory time for proceeding from NP to CD stage,
this project has shown significant progress and there is reason to suppose that
it will be completed; and Having reviewed the situation, SC22 accepts the
explanation that has been presented for the need for further time in the case

notes: 1. The scope of
JTC 1.22.29 continues to include work related to VDM Modules; 1. Countries interested
