AFII used to be the registrar for ISO 10036, but in 1998 decided to get out
of this business, since the last request for glyph registration had been
the 'euro' symbol in 1997, and that was a singly glyph. AFII wound down its
business and was dissolved in 2000, not having received a single request
for additional glyph registration.
Yuchi Komachi, one of AFII's board members, and active in SC34, engineered
the transfer of registration authority to GLOCOM in 2001, with particular
emphasis on wanting to support the registration of some of the other
entities, beyond glyph identifiers, that are described in 10036.
At the moment, the GLOCOM site publishes identifiers for some of the
ideographs. I did not see a way to get the identifiers for any other glyphs
from their site, nor have I seen evidence of registration of additional
glyphs or additional types of entities.
