Subject: RE: [codelist] Minutes of Code List Representation TC teleconference 2007-04-17

Hi everyone,

  Sorry for being silent - last week was the OASIS Symposium in San Diego, CA USA and I'm still trying to catch up. If
you look at any of the OASIS Standard Ballot familiarization announcements you'll see links to statements of use. In
their most general form:

"This certifies that [insert Company name] is successfully using [insert specification name] consistent with the
requirements of the OASIS Technical Committee Process."

Note, however, that a new rule goes into effect 1 June:
dd) "Statement of Use", with respect to a specification, is a written statement by an OASIS Organizational Member
stating that it is successfully using or implementing that specification in accordance with the conformance clauses
specified in Section 2.18*, and stating whether its use included the interoperation of multiple independent

[NOTE: The following words in Section 1(dd), referring to conformance clauses, will be effective as of 1 June 2007, and
will not apply to any version approved as a Committee Specification by that date which does not include conformance
clauses: "in accordance with the conformance clauses specified in Section 2.18". See also the Note to Section 2.18,

This places an additional burden on the certifying organization; it also means that any specification put forth on/after
1 June will need to contain a separate conformance clause section. Please note that a "best practices" document and
revised templates are in the works and will be posted as soon as available.
