ISO establishes process evaluation group

A process evaluation group (PEG) has been established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to assess the effectiveness of current ISO processes and to develop recommendations for consideration by ISO's technical management board as appropriate.

The overarching goal of the PEG's efforts is to reinforce the reputation and value of ISO's approach to international standardisation.

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 preparing a coordinated response for New ZealandĀ on the above questions. Please email International Manager Karen Batt at by mid July 2010 if you would like to have your say on this issue.
