The project proposal for this subject was approved by CEN/TC 251 in 2017, but has been on hold due to ongoing conversations with the European Commission for support for the development of the CEN Technical Specification. We have been informed recently that the European Commission has confirmed their commitment to support this project. The consultation process for recruiting the Project Lead will take place in November. The following CEN members have indicated their active support for this project: France (AFNOR), United Kingdom (BSI), Germany (DIN), Netherlands (NEN), Sweden (SIS), Finland (SFS) and Italy (UNI).
Beside the original British standard PAS 277 from 2015 as input document, there are recent developments locally and internationally to consider when the project starts in CEN/TC 251, in cooperation with ISO/TC 215/JWG7. Interested experts can participate by contacting their CEN national member body and CEN/TC 251 secretariat.
