Slap my butt and call me Spanky! That's pretty good news from my point of view. I read somewhere though that the USA (ANSI) voted against it (unverified).

The document as it stands looks pretty good, and will be easy to adjust to. IMMHO ;)

Don't suppose you know why, by any chance? Ahhh...Canada....we're slowly but surely losing our "plays well with others" reputation. :)

There's a reason, for sure...

My guess is that it has things in there viewed detrimental to these bodies. Probably more restrictions being imposed from an organization that has shown its willingness to stack the deck.......I won't get political, except that it probably is. ;)

What does the no vote from US really mean? Companies will still get compliant and registered???

Our weight on subjects like this does not carry as far as it use too in the international arena.

Is the vote a majority rules kind of vote?

Votes are consensus @ 75% required to pass. This thing will go to FDIS for vote by the total ISO next. For the life of me I can't figure out why we voted against it. Probably some of the hypoxia stricken people serving on the US portion of TC 207 didn't like the color of the ink or something.

Do you mean cerbral hypoxia or this: :vfunny:

HYPOXIA
Throughout the world, large areas of our coastal waters are becoming so polluted that they lack sufficient oxygen, one of the basic building blocks of life. This condition is called "hypoxia." Although this is sometimes a natural condition, the increased area of water affected, extended length of each episode, and higher frequency in recent decades are due to human activities. Overenrichment of estuaries and coastal waters with nutrients, especially nitrogen, stimulates outbreaks or "blooms" of algae that consume vital oxygen from the water when they decompose. The effects of hypoxia include fish kills and shellfish bed losses. These losses can have significant detrimental effects on the ecological and economic health and stability of coastal regions health and stability of coastal regions.

Think they are related? :bonk:
