Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) (FormFDIS)
The FDIS is circulated to the National Committees for a two-month voting period. Each National Committee's vote must be explicit: positive, negative or abstention.
No comments are allowed with a positive vote.
An FDIS is approved if:
- 2/3 majority of P-members voting approve and if
- Less than 25% of all votes submitted are negative.
If the document is approved, it progresses to the final publication stage.
If the document is not approved, it is referred back to the TC or SC to be reconsidered.
