Vote closes on draft ISO/IEC DIS 29500 standard

Otherwise known as ECMA-376.


The ISO press release is here. Again, thanks to all of those involved who gave up time and resources to ensure that the correct decision was made on the day.

It doesn't stop here though. There will be a Ballot Resolution Meeting to consider the comments and that meeting will be run by the JTC1/SC34 subcommittee... of which New Zealand is not a member. We would strongly urge Standards New Zealand to register as a Participating Country on that subcommittee to ensure that the views expressed in the recent workshops are considered at the BRM.

The subcommittee membership is also important as apparently there has been a recent surge in P-Country membership there as well.
