The Stockholm TC 207 plenary:
The 8th Plenary of the ISO Technical Committee 207 (TC 207), which develops the ISO 14000 series standards, took place in Stockholm, Sweden, June 11-18.
At the plenary, NGOs and the TC207 NGO Contact group presented a Joint Discussion Paper and NGO Summary Report to TC207 on the role of NGOs in the development and implementation of ISO 14000 series standards. TC207 did not adopt the Summary report, which among other recommends forming an NGO Task Group. Instead TC207 passed Resolution 17/2000, issuing a letter ballot to decide on whether or not to approve the Summary report. A majority of national ISO members (18 for, 4 against and 5 abstaining) subsequently voted in favor of supporting it.
