OASIS members and other interested parties,
The OASIS Privacy Management Reference Model (PMRM) TC members  have produced an updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 15-day public review:
Privacy Management Reference Model and Methodology (PMRM) Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 04 / Public Review Draft 04
31 March 2016
The Privacy Management Reference Model and Methodology provides a model and a methodology to understand and analyze privacy policies and their privacy management requirements in defined Use Cases; and select the technical Services, Functions and Mechanisms that must be implemented to support requisite Privacy Controls.

This edition is a significant update to the Committee Specification approved in July 2013.
