|Subject:||Advance Transmittal to INCITS L2 for the "2004 Systematic Review of International Standards "|
The INCITS Secretariat has received the 2004 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 to 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 The review aims at deciding whether these International Standards should be confirmed, revised or withdrawn.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.
Recommendation for INCITS
The committee is to coordinate and develop the U.S. recommended position to INCITS 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.]
