STATUS:
JTC 1 passed the attached resolution at the Sophia Antipolis Plenary.  Following the resolution text, I have identified the SC 22 standards that have been withdrawn (according to the ISO database).  SC 22 members are requested to review the list and  send recommendations to the SC 22 Secretariat for any standards that should be transitioned to stabilized status.  This recommendation should address the rationale requested by JTC 1, and also include the name of a project editor nominee if possible (strictly for a point of contact for questions as these standards are not being revised).  Please submit this information to the SC 22 Secretariat no later than 2003-01-07 as we will need to circulate the responses to SC 22 members for approval prior to submission to JTC 1 (due date 2003-05-15).

Resolution 36 - Re-adoption of Withdrawn Standards and Simultaneous Transition to Stabilized Status

JTC 1 recognizes that there are a small number of standards which have been withdrawn in the past even though other standards and/or implementations still exist which are dependent upon the standard.  JTC 1 notes that such standards would have been made stabilized standards, but that the Stabilized Standards category did not exist.  JTC 1 notes that such withdrawn standards implicitly meet the requirements for stabilized status of maturity, stability, and lack of change.

To address this situation, JTC 1 instructs its Secretariat to notify JTC 1 National Bodies and Subcommittees that for a period of six months (from 15 November 2002- 15 May 2003), proposals may be received to re-adopt such previously withdrawn standards and simultaneously transition them into stabilized Status, according to the following provisions:

       Each such standard when proposed by a JTC 1 National Body or Subcommittee must be accompanied by documentation of existing dependent standards or existing in-use implementations dependent upon the standard

       No changes of any sort whatsoever may be made to the standard during this process.  If any changes are needed the standard must be addressed via an NP.

Abstention: Switzerland
