|Subject:||Transmittal of "Systematic Review of International Standards" to INCITS/L2|
The JTC 1 TAG Administrator has received the list of International Standards published five or ten years ago, or more, for systematic review. The U.S. TAG is required to recommend a vote for the National Body.
In accordance with clause 14.3 of the Procedures for the Technical Work of ISO/IEC JTC 1 on Information Technology, 1998, International Standards coming up for five years of age since publication have to be reviewed by the committee responsible for their preparation. The review aims at deciding whether these International Standards should be confirmed, revised or withdrawn. The decision regarding confirmation, revision or withdrawal should be based on the degree to which the International Standards have been implemented at the national level and applied in practice.
The committee is to coordinate and develop the U.S. recommended position to JTC 1 TAG for approval, by a thirty-day letter ballot or roll call vote. The U.S. vote will be forwarded to ANSI for submission to ISO/IEC JTC 1. For some standards, the Subcommittee (SC) recommendation is provided. If the committee concurs with the SC recommendation, it should state this and provide the technical committee vote.
[Note however: The answers to all five questions are required.]
The position options are:
The position must be submitted in a format consistent with the guidelines specified in JTC 1 N 5348 for submission to the JTC 1 Secretariat.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the standard if you need one.
The committee should return the U.S. recommendation to the JTC 1 TAG Administrator for approval by a 30-day JTC 1 TAG letter ballot no later than May 30, 2002 so that, if necessary, a 10-day reconsideration ballot may be conducted and the U.S. vote forwarded to ANSI by to the JTC 1 closing date of July 15, 2002.
ACTION REQUIRED BY JTC 1 TAG
JTC 1 TAG members are required to begin reviewing the document in preparation for expeditiously determining their vote when the U.S. TAG recommendation is submitted to JTC 1 TAG for approval. Members noting objections are urged to send their comments via email to the INCITS/L2 Chair immediately.
JTC 1 TAG members should review the list of International Standards
at this time and anticipate the JTC 1 TAG Letter Ballot on this subject
