Why IS? zInternational interoperability zIn two languages; national bodies have right to publish local version, e.g. Translation zIncreased focus on definition where obscure outside national area zNational prejudices
Process zNew work item NWI, Recommended by AG, voted by TC46 plenary zWD - in working group zCD - 3 month ballot; 2/3 majority zDIS - in French & English, 5 month ballot, 3/4 majority zFDIS - 2 month ballot; Y/N zWait for publication
Process continued zPreference for National Standards as a basis zFast track - voted at SC - skips CD ballot yISO 23950; GEDI; 12083 (SGML) ysaves about 3 months, wasted if DIS voting does not succeed zMinimum time for IS - about 2 years; for Fast track - about 12 months
Profiles zISP (International Standard Profile) - same process as IS; therefore zIRP (International Registered Profile) - electronic only, reliant on a standard, therefore needs to stay aligned ye.g. CIMI, UCP
