The Open Source Consortium is to become a member of the BSI IST/41 committee.

Details of IST/41 are described here. It works on the UK’s submission to the ISO on DIS 29500 (Office Open XML, or OOXML).

Gerry Gavigan joined the meeting of the British Standards Institute’s technical committee IST/41 on 2nd July 2009 as an observer, on behalf of the Open Source Consortium. He provided information to IST/41 members about the interest of the Open Source Consortium in being represented on the committee, and contributed to the discussions.

The committee chairman received no objections to the OSC’s application for membership and will enable the Open Source Consortium to become a member of IST/41.
