TC 46/SC 11 to review its Technical Reports

 

TC 46/SC 11 Advisory Group on Strategic Directions was created in 2019.

It advises the Chair of TC 46/SC 11 on strategic issues and oversees the work of Task Forces, which are responsible for specific tasks which will not result in ISO products.

For example, a terminology consistency Task Force is working closely with SC11 Work Groups to ensure that generic terms and definitions are used in a consistent way in SC11 products.

The Advisory Group created a Task Force to focus on the review and revision of existing SC 11 products and possible new work items.

ISO 30300: Records Management: Core concepts and vocabulary published in Spanish

UNE, the Spanish Standardization Body,  has published UNE ISO 30300 in February 2021. Spanish, despite is not an official ISO language, is spoken by more than 500 million persons in the world. In the records management field, there were some important terms with difficult translation to Spanish that might end in misunderstanding.  This translation aims to help in the understanding, use and easy translation of records management standards. 

Ad Hoc Group Looks at Structured Data

Ad Hoc Group Looks at Structured Data

At the "London" Plenary in May, ISO TC 46/SC 11 resolved that Ad Hoc Group 3 - Structured Data Environments (AHG3) continue up to May 2021 to undertake further research and market assessment of the management of records in structured data environments.  AHG3 will be presenting options to pursue one or more preliminary work items.

As digitalization in society broadens and deepens, some of the most critical records are made and kept in sets of data. More and more often, structured data records become the only records an organization has to provide authoritative evidence for its decision-making and business delivery. If not properly managed, their value as evidence could diminish, adversely impacting the productivity, compliance, trustworthiness, and reputation of the organization.
