ASQ/ANSI Z1.4–2003 (R2018) Change Log?

#1
Is there a change log available for the ASQ/ANSI Z1.4-2003 (R2018) "Reaffirmation" or does anyone know of any changes off hand?

The R2013 version's was nice enough to have the changes on the product page and these were included in the "Foreword" of the standard, but the latest version has no such log and does not even contain a "Foreword" at all. The standard does state that ASQ needs to reaffirm the standard no later than 5 years, but it would be nice if there was SOME type of indication of even the LACK of changes within...

Either way the tables my organization uses doesn't seem to have any changes (No surprise).

TLDR; don't worry too much about reaffirmations. If it would have made a difference in decisions you would make, it would (should) have been a revision.

I don't know about that specific standard, but I've never worried too much about Reaffirmations. If it was important in their eyes, it would have been a revision. I'd be hard pressed to push anyone on putting in more effort then looking at the summary, and simply consider it an indication of the date that the most recent review for suitability has occurred. Some use review/stability dates for this (often outside of the document, such as ISO), while this way amends/apends the actual document revision identifier (which introduces some referencing problems), and might account for errata/corrigendums without being clear on it (ISO uses a to me inconsistently applied system of amendments and corrigendum, with strange numbering (sometimes starting at 11).

Pro's and con's can be stated for either case, and are specific to an organization's needs. The biggest burden with all these different approaches to what is in essence document control is communication with a third party on what differences between versions, revisions (in all their kinds) are and are not material, and making why a test report/process etc is or is not valid.

For example: our national standards body on occasion accepts a standard's main text as is, adds its 'container sheets' at the beginning and end, sometimes publishes this in a different year (the main characteristic that people use to distinguish revisions) and yet provides the non-national version for a different price as well). Lately ISO has been adding both year of issue and an edition number again (good), but not every standard organization applies this at their container level, or provisions to distinguish national deviations.

Their documentation (https://share.ansi.org/Shared Documents/Standards Activities/American National Standards/Procedures, Guides, and Forms/2019_ANSI_Essential_Requirements.pdf) states:


4.2.1.2 Reaffirmation of an American National Standard

The due process and consensus requirements defined herein apply to reaffirmations as they do to all approval
actions related to American National Standards (ANS). The procedures used for reaffirmation of an American National
Standard by an accredited standards developer shall be implemented according to the developer’s ANSI
accredited procedures. Reaffirmations shall provide an opportunity for public comment.

Reaffirmations shall be accomplished without any substantive change to the main text of the standard. All nonsubstantive
changes in the main text of the standard shall be explained, or noted, in a foreword
. An American
National Standard undergoing an update of references to standards necessary to implement the American
National Standard shall be processed as a revision unless the updated reference is only a reaffirmation of the
referenced standard. Any substantive changes in such references require processing as a revision.

The ANS shall clearly indicate on its cover or title page that it is a reaffirmation.

(I really enjoy document control, my apologies for the long text).
