Subject: Letter ballot on Withdrawal of ISO/IEC TR 14652
At its last meeting, CT22 formulated the position below regarding ISO/IEC TR 14652. The purpose of this letter ballot is to approve this position.
According to the JTC 1 Directives, 16.4.1 (Maintenance of Type 1 and Type 2 Technical Reports), ------- 18.104.22.168 TRs of types 1 and 2 shall be subject to review by JTC 1 not later than three years after their publication. The aim of such a review shall be to re-examine the situation which resulted in the publication of a TR and if possible to achieve the agreement necessary for the publication of an IS to replace the TR. 22.214.171.124 The SC responsible for the type 1 or type 2 TR project shall make a recommendation to JTC 1 prior to the third year after publication, stating whether the TR should be: . Converted to an IS without change; . Revised and published as an IS; . Confirmed for continuation as a TR; . Revised for publication as a revision to the TR; . Withdrawn. ------- Noting that such a review for ISO/IEC TR 14652:2004 is overdue, the U.S. requests that an item be placed on this year's plenary agenda for review purposes, and that the following resolution be voted on in relation to that TR: ------- Resolution 07-xx: Withdrawal of TR 14652 ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 22 cancels project 22.30.02.03, requests its secretariat conduct a letter ballot to withdraw TR 14652, and further instructs its Secretariat to inform SC 35 of this decision, and the result of the ballot. ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 22 further instructs the project editor of this project to provide a copy of all documents relevant to the canceled project (including any drafts) to Keld Simonsen for archiving. -------
The ballot closes on September 13, 2007.
