The international community, that gave the approval, consisted of 17 active national communities worldwide and two observing committees.

Thus, the member countries of the sub-committee IEC SC 65 E, have approved all 18 parts of the FDT specification. The document is now ready for the next steps in the process of being accepted as an International Standard, which are the votes as FDIS, Final Draft for International Standard, and the final vote as IS, International Standard, expected in May 2009.

Klaus-Peter Lindner, vice president for Associations and Standardisation in the FDT Group said the FDT Group’s goal was to have the FDT specification become an international standard.

‘This important milestone was reached thanks to all the international experts who worked hard to resolve all comments made on the previous Committee Drafts and to include them in the available Committee Draft,’ said Lindner.

‘The unanimous acceptance by the national committees shows that all previously submitted comments were addressed to their full satisfaction.

‘We are looking forward to the next steps and a successful acceptance of FDT Technology as an International Standard.’
