The new cooperation agreement of the Organization for the Development of Partnership Standards (PSDO) applies in two areas: road vehicles (ISO TC22) and intelligent transport systems (ISO TC204). «This important agreement is a response to changes in many global sectors, including mobility technologies. The growing technological complexity must be addressed through joint standardization efforts to avoid duplication and reduce the costs of the global network of automotive trading partners,» said David L. Schutt, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of SAE International. «We look forward to a successful collaboration with ISO.» The ISO secretariat announces that a meeting of an ISO technical committee will be held if the committee deems it necessary for the work to continue properly. The date and location of these meetings are subject to agreement between the chair and the secretariat of the committee and the national body acting as host. In the event of a subcommittee meeting, the subcommittee secretariat consults with the secretariat of the Mothers Committee to ensure the coordination of the meetings. As an American member of ISO, only ANSI can invite an ISO committee that meets in the United States. An invitation to a meeting group may be renewed by the appointed American expert or the appointed American expert, subject to prior consultation and prior approval by the competent TAG administrator and DER ANSI.
The agreement was approved by the respective governing bodies of ISO and SAE, in agreement with ISO`s national member body, in which the CAS has its legal headquarters (ANSI). In addition to the activities of the U.S. TAG, ANSI may, where appropriate and in accordance with ANSI`s mission, to promote U.S.-based technology worldwide, to approve the implementation of Partnership Agreements of the Partnership Development Organization (PSDO) with ISO. In order to coordinate the two activities with the U.S. national process, ANSI also needs prompt notification from an ANSI accredited standards developer about its intention to submit a proposed U.S. National Standard (END) for approval as ISO or ISO/IEC JTC-1. See ANSI Essential Requirements: Due process requirements for American National Standards. In such cases, ANSI-accredited U.S. TADTs should raise concerns about the proposed NDS during their development cycle, so that if the standard is then approved at the ISO or ISO/CIS JTC-1 level, the U.S. position will be to support their approval. For existing NDEs, the PSDO is required to obtain and obtain approval from applicable ANSI accredited MEMBER STATES before submitting a standard to ISO under a PSDO agreement.
The AnSI encourages dispute resolution at all times when the settlement is consistent with the objectives of the ANSI procedures. Any transaction that the parties accept in writing that complies with these procedures or any agreement to withdraw the complaint will end the appeal process. The agreement currently focuses on the following technical areas: the appointment of several directors should be avoided as far as possible, but may be approved by the ExSC in exceptional circumstances, on the recommendation of its representative, if necessary.
