According to one presentation I read[1], a number of European
countries are waiting for the results of the U.S. test--and
translations of RDA--before making any kind of move.  Another
presentation has some information on RDA implementation by non-U.S.
Anglo libraries[2].

European countries on plans for moving to RDA" at
