Standards are not to be written by consultants!!!! I have participated in standards organizations for several years and membership and participation by consultants in the US is limited. I hope Chris that you are being tongue in cheek. I also hope that every practitioner and researcher can claim participation in the standards practice and frankly I hope there will be severe limits on consultant participation. This is for a very good reason, while consultants see many different applications, it is only human nature to either assume they tailored the standard to their practice so as to position themselves in the market. This destroys the credibility of the standard and raises the many questions I'm reading about the validity of the process....murray jennextoggle quoted messageShow quoted text

I guess one of the spin-off benefits of engaging with and commenting on the draft document, Boris, is that you too can legitimately tell your clients that you have been involved in drafting the standard!
By the time it’s published, there’s no reason why every km consultant in the world wouldn’t be able to ‘differentiate themselves’ with that claim. :)
