ISO forms process evaluation group

ISO has established a process evaluation group (PEG) to assess the effectiveness of current ISO processes and to develop recommendations for consideration of the ISO technical management board.

The intention of the PEG's efforts is to reinforce the reputation and value of ISO's approach to international standardisation and international Standard development processes.

In order to fulfil its tasks the PEG has prepared the following generic set of questions.

1. Do you think that there are specific subjects of a global nature (for example, emerging technologies; Standards supporting public policies; Standards addressing subjects such as societal issues, fraud, or security) that would benefit from different operational and participation models than the traditional ISO approaches and model? If no, please explain why.

2. If yes, which subjects and why?

3. If yes, what would you recommend as important elements of how alternative operational and participation models should work?

Standards New Zealand is currently consulting with New Zealand stakeholders participating in ISO projects to seek their responses to these questions. The PEG has requested feedback by October 2011.

If you have any questions or suggestions for feedback please email
