The ISO Committee responsible for the development of the standards for product data technology (ISO TC184/SC4) was awarded the prestigious Lawrence D. Eicher Leadership Award for 2007 at the ISO General Assembly in September 2007 in front of 400 delegates from 125 countries. This award is in recognition for leadership and innovation in the development of standards and is the only award that ISO makes for its technical work. Many of the tutors for the DEPUIS e-learning courses are responsible for the development of the standards for ISO TC184/SC4. See the ISO Focus magazine Vol. 4 no. 12 December 2007 for articles on the development and use of SC4 standards.

Sharing Expertise for
Practical Application of Standards
The basic concept of the IF is to provide a platform for users from the various sectors in the region and the SC4 experts to share information about practical application of standards.

The intention is to create a platform for end users, who can present the business case of their company investments in standards, and for SC4 experts, who can get feedback on the usefulness and applicability of the standards they have developed so that these can further be improved.
