ISO/TC 159 Standards Update for June
By Daryle Gardner-Bonneau, Chair, U.S. TAG to ISO/TC159
Except for newly published standards, titles of standards are abbreviated in this listing, but you can obtain the complete title for any standard by visiting the HFES Standards Web page and then clicking on the Subcommittee (SC) Technical Advisory Group (TAG) that is involved with the standard in which you're interested. Clicking that link will display a graphic of the SC's structure and a listing of all the projects and standards of that subcommittee. You can also purchase standards and search full titles and abstracts by going to the ANSI Store or the ISO Store and searching by the document's number (e.g., ISO 24504). The contacts whose e-mail addresses are provided below (i.e., Daryle Gardner-Bonneau, Robert Fox, and James Williams) welcome your inquiries and your participation in these activities.
