ANSI REFRESHER COURSE 2019 CHANGES TO THE ISO DIRECTIVES You must complete the registration form after you finish this course to comply with the ANSI Executive Standards Council (ExSC) requirement for training on new changes to the ISO Directives, processes and procedures that are introduced each year. 2019 ISO DIRECTIVES, PART 1 UPDATES COURSE GENERAL What Has Changed? In keeping with decisions of the ISO/TMB to foster greater project management discipline in ISO committees, and with the introduction of a new ISO project management methodology and clarified committee leader roles, the title of Committee Secretary has been changed to Committee Manager throughout the Directives, Part 1. Impact on US Persons Serving as ISO Committee Leaders: Committee managers should review the latest ISO/TMB document on committee leader roles and responsibilities and understand the expectations of committee managers going forward. ISO is developing training for committee managers in this role and

with the new expectations. When the ISO training is available, ANSI will adapt it and offer such training to ISO committee managers in the USA. Impact on US/TAGs: None. 3 2019 3 2019 ISO DIRECTIVES, PART 1 UPDATES COURSE FOREWORD What Has Changed? In section e) on General principles for voting and decisions, the following new text has been added: When a document is out for ballot (NP, CD or any later stage) formal discussion during meetings or distribution of National Body positions via formal committee distribution channels are prohibited. Impact on US Persons Serving as ISO Committee Leaders: Committee chairs, committee managers, WG convenors and project leaders shall ensure that no formal discussions takes place on the agenda of a meeting of a document that is currently out for ballot at the time of that meeting. This will help to prevent inappropriate discussions and

lobbying seeking to influence the outcome of the voting. Committee leaders will also ensure that official committee sites and communications channels are not used by National Bodies or experts to share national positions and comments in order to seek support for them. It is more appropriate for National Bodies, delegates and experts to seek support and network on voting positions by other means. Impact on US/TAGs: US/TAGs and US delegates and experts shall find other electronic means to share positions and comments and to seek support. Please note that the sharing of national positions and comments on open social media platforms is not appropriate. 4 2019 4 2019 SO DIRECTIVES, PART 1 UPDATES COURSE CLAUSE 1.8.1 APPOINTMENT OF COMMITTEE CHAIRS What Has Changed? New text has been added to this clause that reads: Where two NSBs agree to share the leadership of an ISO committee, they may jointly identify a chair and jointly agree the way in which they will support that chair. In such cases, the NSB holding the committee secretariat is encouraged to nominate a chair from the other NSB. For the purposes of transparency, the NSBs involved shall inform the committee members of

any cooperative relationships. Impact on US Persons Serving as ISO Committee Leaders: In cases where two NSBs voluntarily agree to share the leadership of the committee, they will mutually agree on which country will hold the committee chair positions and which country will hold the committee manager position. As all procedures for appointment of committee chairs will still be followed in such cases, the committee manager will nominate the committee chair, presumably from the other national body partner, to the TMB for approval. The committee manager shall ensure that all P and O members of the committee are fully aware of any such agreements and arrangements. Impact on US/TAGs: To support cases, where appropriate, where ANSI and another NSB wish to share leadership, and to support the proposed delineation of responsibilities between ANSI and the partner NSB. 5 2019 5 2019 ISO DIRECTIVES, PART 1 UPDATES COURSE CLAUSE 1.8.3 TWINNED CHAIRS What Has Changed? The first paragraph of this clause has been revised as follows, in keeping with new ISO/TMB

decisions in 2018 to improve twinning in ISO: Committees are encouraged to establish chair level twinning arrangements where one ISO member body acts as the lead partner and the other ISO member body as the twinned partner (with a limit of one twinned-chair per committee). Twinned-chairs shall be a Pmember (i.e. any P-member whether through a twinning arrangement or not) in the committee concerned. The same rules apply for the appointment and term of chairs and twinned-chairs. The delineation of responsibilities shall be decided by mutual agreement and recorded in a twinning agreement between the two member bodies nominating the chair and the twinned-chair, with the committee members and the office of the CEO being informed accordingly.

For the purposes of transparency, the NSBs involved shall inform the committee members of any cooperative relationships. Impact on US Persons Serving as ISO Committee Leaders: Committee managers in the USA who choose to work with support from another NSB may do so, defining the delineation of the work. Alternatively, we may choose to support another NSB that holds the committee manager role. In all cases, all members of the committee shall be fully informed of the arrangements.
