Anticipated INCITS EB Ballot: April 30, 2010 - May 30, 2010
Possible Reconsideration Period: May 31, 2010 - June 9, 2010

The INCITS Secretariat has received the 2010 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 15.3 of the Procedures for the Technical Work of ISO/IEC JTC 1 on Information Technology (JTC 1 N 8557), International Standards coming up to five years of age since publication shall be reviewed by the committee responsible for their development and maintenance. The review aims at deciding whether these International Standards should be withdrawn, revised/amended, confirmed, confirmed with correction of errors, abstained on, abstained on with survey replies, or stabilized. The decision regarding withdrawal, revision/amendment, confirmation, declared as stabilized should be based on the degree to which the International Standards have been implemented at the national level and applied in practice.

Technical Committee Action

The committee is to coordinate and develop the U.S. recommended position (via thirty-day letter ballot or roll call vote) to INCITS EB for approval. The U.S. vote will be forwarded to ANSI for submission to ISO/IEC JTC 1. For some standards, a recommendation may have been previously developed in the Subcommittee (SC). The committee should provide the answers to the five questions and the technical committee vote. Please submit recommendations to dspittle@itic.org by the TC due date.  If you need a copy of the standard in order to provide a recommendation to INCITS EB, please let me know.

[Note: The answers to all five questions are required as stated below. Please insert the ISO designation and use a separate answer page for each standard.

In determining the answer to question two, please see the List of International Standards Adopted by INCITS as National Standards.]

The questions are:

Question 1

Recommended action:

Question 2
(see Note above)

Has this International Standard been adopted or is it intended to be adopted in the future as a national standard or other publication?



Question 3

Is the national publication identical to the International Standard of was it modified?
                Reply only if the answer to Question 2 is "Yes"



Question 4

Is this International Standard used in your country without national adoption or are products used in your country based on this standard?



Question 5

Is this International Standard, or its national adoption, referenced in regulations in your country?



*Comment required
**Although abstaining, a response is required for question four, regarding national use.


INCITS EB members are requested to begin reviewing the documents in preparation for expeditiously determining their vote when the U.S. TAG recommendation is submitted for approval. Members noting objections are urged to send their comments via email to the TC Chair immediately - see email address above.

INCITS EB members should anticipate providing the U.S. vote if it becomes necessary to post this request to the INCITS EB Agenda at a future meeting.
