BSI is inviting DHACA members to comment on the draft for PAS 212 during its four week consultation period.
PAS 212 is entitled “Automatic resource discovery for the Internet of Things” so is clearly very relevant to the DHACA community, particularly for those involved in deployment of sensors/wearables.
A PAS (Publicly Available Specification) is a sponsored, fast-track, consensus-building informal standard that is produced by the UK national standards body, BSI Standards Limited. The development of PAS 212 has been sponsored by Flexeye. Although non-mandatory, historically BSI PAS standards have often been later incorporated into mandatory standards, so it is worth taking very seriously.
To download, review and comment on the draft, please go here and register for free online (new users) and log in. The closing date for consultation is 8th January 2016. Only comments submitted electronically through the online Draft Review System by the date given will be accepted.
Hat hit to Melvin Reynolds for drawing this to my attention.
