ISO/IEC Guide 14 provides general principles intended to make it easier for consumers to effectively compare products or services prior to purchase. This includes general rules for the creation of purchase implementation systems and related purchase information bodies. The guide is primarily intended for those involved in the preparation and revision of voluntary consensus standards for consumer products and services, including committees preparing consumer product and service standards, technical writers, product designers, manufacturers, and members of purchase information bodies, among others. Revisions to ISO/IEC Guide 14 would update the current edition, which was published in 2003.
Individuals interested in participating in the WG or supporting its work through the U.S. VTAG should contact ANSI's Rachel Hawthorne by email at email@example.com by close of business on Wednesday, September 18, 2013.
