Research development and innovation process management new work item proposal

11/12/2012

Standards New Zealand is seeking feedback on a new work item proposal on Research, development and innovation – Process management. The national member body of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in Brazil (ABNT) has proposed this project to ISO.

This international Standard specifies requirements to a management system in the field of research, development, and innovation (RD&I) and aims to provide to users the tools to establish, implement, maintain, and improve efficiency and consistency in their RD&I routines. It will also provide guidance on research and development activities, which constitute the base for innovation through inputs and consolidated technical parameters such as test methods, sampling criteria, and safety requirements, among others. The proposal aims to develop a requirement Standard.

Standards New Zealand is consulting with key stakeholders in this area to determine New Zealand's response. To receive a copy of the proposal, for more information, or to submit comments including support for or opposition to the proposal, please email isoadmin@standards.co.nz. Comments received will be used to form a New Zealand position on this proposal. Please provide your comments by 18 January 2013.
