Re: [802SEC] Fw: National Body Adoption of IEEE standards

G’day Paul


The work of the IEEE 802 JTC1 SC over at least 15 years provides many examples where allowing NB modifications to IEEE 802 standards would cause significant issues in terms of international interoperability. IEEE 802 should tell IEEE-SA that no IEEE 802 standards shall be included in this program without explicit permission from IEEE 802.


We should also tell IEEE-SA to tell any NB proposing to make changes to IEEE 802 standards to make the proposal to IEEE 802 directly. We are actually welcoming and would probably accept many of the proposed changes.

Dear 802 EC Members,


Please see the below notice from IEEE SA regarding National Body Adoptions.  I already spoke with Yvette Ho San to indicate IEEE 802 most likely will not participate in the program because our stakeholders cannot tolerate any potential for errors in country specific changes or the translation process.

Subject: National Body Adoption of IEEE standards


To Standards Committees


IEEE SA has created a new program that will be implemented in the first quarter of 2020.  The program will be a more streamlined process for National Body adoption of IEEE standards. The non-editable template agreement will permit country-specific changes and translations. Countries would be able to adopt IEEE standards as national body standards, and include changes they would like to make that, for example, might include changes due to geography, infrastructure, regulatory requirements, etc. In order to determine which standards will be available under this program, IEEE SA will need your input on whether there are standards developed under your Standards Committee where country-specific changes could substantially impact the standard's implementation worldwide (e.g., functionality or interoperability). Please inform your Program Manager by 24 January 2020 of any relevant standards.      


If you have specific questions, please contact Thank you.  


Best regards,
