  5. Freely Available Standards

    SC 29 recommends to make the following TR and IS (including their amendments, corrigenda, and the future revision) freely available on Website.

    SC 29 instructs its Secretariat to revise the rationale contained in the recommendation in N 6541 (ISO/IEC 21000-2) and request JTC 1 to issue letter ballots in order to facilitate timely implementation of those recommendations.


  6. Systematic Review

    SC 29 recommends the confirmation of the following ISs at its systematic review period in 2007:


  7. Contribution from the National Body of Australia on SC 29 Scope

    SC 29 requests the National Body of Australia to give more detail on the concerns expressed in its contribution so that these can be considered by the Advisory Group on Management or the next SC 29 Plenary meeting.


  8. SC 29 IPR Database

    SC 29 believes that there would be benefits from its members having access to the Patent Statements that have been made in respect of standards created by its Working Groups. Although the Experimental ISO/IEC JTC 1 Patent Database contains some information about these Statements, it does not give access to the text of the Statements. SC29 believes this text may be important in some circumstances as most Statements to date have been made in an unstructured way without the use of a common form.

    SC 29 would like to see an archive of scanned copies of all such Patent Statements, with access restricted to SC 29 members on the same terms as other SC 29 documents.

    However, SC 29 understands that concerns have been expressed about such an archive being created.

    SC 29 seeks advice from JTC 1 on how it should proceed and, if the project is approved, asks its Secretariat to manage the creation and maintenance of the archive.

    SC 29 believes that such an archive could be created within three months of the project being approved and understands that certain National Bodies would provide the appropriate resources on a voluntary basis. unanimous

  9. Appointment of the WG 1 Convener

    SC 29 appoints Dr. Daniel T. Lee, USA, as the WG 1 Convener starting 2005-04-26.


  10. Appointment of the WG 11 Convener

    SC 29 appoints Dr. Leonardo Chiariglione, Italy, as the WG 11 Convener starting 2005-04-26.


  11. SC 29 Business Plan

    SC 29 instructs its Chairman to update the SC 29 draft business plan in SC 29 N 6606 based on the result from this plenary meeting, and instructs the SC 29 Secretariat to submit it to JTC 1.


  12. SC 29 Web Site

    NB's UserID and Password for SC 29 E-balloting will not be changed.


  13. JTC 1 Special Working Group on Accessibility

    SC 29 appoints Dr. Kate Grant (UK) as its representative on this SWG and requests her to

    1. communicate all relevant information about the activities of SC 29 and its Working Groups to the SWG and
    2. report to SC 29 and its AGM as appropriate on the activities of the SWG.


  14. Review of Category A Liaison

    Category A:
    Organisations which make an effective contribution to and participate actively in the work of both WG 1 and WG 11 for most of the questions dealt with by the committee.
