SC 29 N 8036, JTC 1 N 8426). The Chairman focused participants attention on the following Resolutions:
SMPTE as an Approved RS Originator Organization (ARO)
SC 29 reviewed and approved SC 29 N 7496, Request for JTC 1 Approval of SMPTE as an ARO.
SC 29 instructed the Secretariat to submit the request to JTC 1 for approval.

SC 29 was concerned about the fact that JTC 1 will shift FCD ballot to the 5 month DIS ballot period because it would impede the process of SC 29's development of standards and have a negative impact on their quality. SC 29 resolved to request JTC 1 and its Special Working Group on JTC 1 Directives to consider reducing the 5 month ISO DIS ballot period to 4 months, and preparing a contribution to the ISO/TMB as described in SC 29 N 8502.
