3 August 2010

The FDIS-ballot of the three parts of ISO/FDIS 28560 is still delayed. Now the three standards are sent to the ISO Central Secretariat from the ISO TC46/SC4 secretariat. During the last months the editors had adjusted the text in dialogue with SC4 secretariat and ISO Central Secretariat. Now but now style and formatting of the text meets the requirements from ISO Central Secretariat. It is important to underline that the technical content, data models and encodings are technically sound and stable.

 

24 March 2010

The FDIS-ballot of the three parts of ISO/FDIS 28560 is delayed, because further editorial work needed before FDIS ballot can be initiated. The comments from the ISO Central Secretariat relate to style and formatting, but the technical content, data models and encodings are technically sound and stable.

The WG editors are working on finalizing the standards according to advice from ISO Central Secretariat.

A short summary is published on that website: http://biblstandard.dk/rfid/docs/summary.htm.
