Technical committees and subcommittees shall seek the full and, if possible, formal backing of the organizations having liaison status for each document in which the latter is interested.

Establishment of liaisons:

Liaisons are established by the Chief Executive Officer in consultation with the secretariat of the technical committee or subcommittee concerned. They are centrally recorded and reported to the technical management board.

Review of liaisons:

Technical committees and subcommittees shall review all their liaison arrangements on a regular basis, at least every 2 years, or at every committee meeting.
