NISO Announces New Registration Process

Bethesda, Md., USA (August 5, 2003) - The National
Information Standards Organization (NISO) is expanding its
standards development program by offering a new
Registration Process. The Registration Process is designed
to make specifications and guidelines developed outside
the formal consensus process available to a larger
community of potential implementers. The NISO Registration
Process provides a light-weight review and accreditation
that will help those developing specifications in evolving
information services secure acceptance and recognition
among a larger community of potential implementers.

The Registration process complements NISO's traditional
consensus based standards development process that is
consistent with ANSI requirements for development and
maintenance of American National Standards.   Details on
the Registration Process and the Registration Application
form are on the NISO website at this url:
