Message from the Chair

In October this year, seven of our nine subcommittees and close to 20 working groups will get together under the same roof for a busy week of meetings. First and foremost, it will be important that we make good progress in our standardisation work. Having so many experts meet at the same place will be a good starting point to achieve just that.

However, I also hope that everyone will take some time to get an understanding of what the various groups and committees are working with. In my opinion, taking a broader view is rewarding and will help ensure that we are all pulling in the same direction. To put it simply: When building a house, we need both foundation, walls, roof, doors and windows, and the house is not complete if any of the parts are missing.    

Finally, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to our host DIN for receiving us in Berlin. 

Welcome to the ISO/TC 59 Plenary Week in Berlin!

Kind regards,
Per Jæger
