Standards under public enquiry
Every draft standard goes through a period of public enquiry before being published as a standard. During this public enquiry, anyone may comment on the draft standard. The standardisation committee then discusses and evaluates all comments and finalises the standard. Following a positive vote on this final draft, the standard is published.
