Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standardization Activity

John C. Shideler writes that, although WG 5 of TC 207 was expected to address comments on the WD1s of two GHG emissions standards in a March meeting, WG 5 decided instead to address more fundamental and strategic issues. A key agreement was to develop a single standard to consist of three parts. While comments on the original WD1s were not directly addressed, Shideler notes that a significant portion were addressed at least in principle. The outcome of the unusual WG 5 approach is consensus on the content and direction of the three parts of ISO 14064. Shideler reports on the strategic issues, results achieved in Malaysia and expected path of future ISO 14064 development.
