NCD Public Review

By: Lee Belbin

TDWG announces the Public Review of the proposed Natural Collections
Descriptions (NCD) standard.  NCD has been reviewed by the TDWG Executive
Committee and we now seek comment from the community.

The NCD abstract can be found here: The TDWG Standards Track
‘Journal’. At the bottom of the abstract page, there is a link to
download the Microsoft Word format file 640kb). This file contains both the
normative component of the standard and (for simplicity), the non-normative
(descriptive) component appended.

IF YOU WISH TO COMMENT ON THE PROPOSED NCD STANDARD, PLEASE USE THE LINK IN THE ABOVE PARAGRAPH (DO NOT ADD COMMENTS TO THIS NEWS ITEM).

In accordance with the TDWG ‘Process’, a minimum of 30 days is required
for public comment on the proposed standard. Comments should therefore be
received by February 15, 2009. Comments must be added by clicking the ‘Add
Comment’ on the right hand side navigation bar. This link will only be
available after logging into the TDWG site as a TDWG registered user.
Comments can be anonymous by selecting ‘post this comment anonymously’
checkbox on the comment form. 

Please distribute this call for comment to anyone you think could or should
comment on NCD. Anyone can register (free) on the TDWG site.
