New Public Commentary dates for British Standard on Knowledge Management (updated 20170913)

I promised in my last post about BS ISO 30401 Human resource management –Knowledge management system (2 September 2016) that I would blog with any updates I spot.

For most of the time since the draft ISO 30401 was passed to National Standards Organisations for review, the public commentary dates have been showing on BSI Standards Development site as 10/08/2017.

In fact that has been delayed while the ISO working group consider the pre-consultation draft: it seems the date for release of the draft for Public Comments in the UK is now 7 December 2017.

The publication date has been moved now to 4 January 2019! Let’s hope it has been waiting for. It bothers me that such little public sense of urgency signals that a sense of enthusiasm is missing. Not among those of us who teach, consult or implement Knowledge Management – come on committees!

On the plus side, there will still be an opportunity for public comments in the winter and early Spring, which we all thought had passed.

Here’s the link to the appropriate page on BSI’s website https://standardsdevelopment.bsigroup.com/projects/2015-03421

One thought on “New Public Commentary dates for British Standard on Knowledge Management (updated 20170913)

  1. Dion as a member of the BSI KM Standards Committee I too was surprised by the deadline dates which seemed at odds with the (relatively) frenetic activity that took place last year and early this to get a working draft to the ISO Working Party charged with delivering the standards for public consultation. It is usual I understand for these to be estimated dates and that the normal timetable is 3 years from the origination of the process which would make it 2018. Like you (and many others) I find the workings of international committees somewhat opaque!
