SCC21 Roadmap for P1547.x and P2030.x Standards

Update May 26, 2020

 

Considerations for SCC21 Criteria for PAR Initiation

  • In order of high to low priority
  • IEEE required timing (10 years)
  • Need for any immediate or emergency updates or amendments
  • Review of wish list for a standard
  • Market adoption conditions / regulatory reference projects
  • Availability of SMEs, key participants or leaders
  • Related efforts, including IEEE SA projects (standards, recommended practices, guides)
