Hi all,
as anticipated we spoke with the Italian ISO persons (one of them had been already involved in the previous standardization of the EPUB as Technical specification) informing them about the idea of submitting the EPUB 3.0.1 and they asked us why we were not willing to submit the new version.

In any case, they asked us to participate as expert supporting the ISO Italian group who will be involved in the ISO process and to inform them when Korea will start the process.
So we will proceed with the step required to become expert and then wait when we decide which is the best solution we choose.

We will also be able trough them to participate to the definition of an EU Harmonized standard if the EU Commission will require it for the EU Accessibility Act.

Hi Leonard,

Thanks for feedback from Lisbon.

I confirm : EPUB 3.2 is the version to consider.

 I spoke with the secretariat of SC34 several  times about this topic. If Korea  submits 3.0.1 as fast tracked DISs, no rewriting is required.  The interpretation  of the secretariat matters in JTC1.  It is the only  authoritative interpretation.

I am sitting in the JWG7 meeting in Lisbon discussing moving EPUB 3.0.1 forward as an ISO IS (international standard) as requested by this group (and others).  After reviewing tdirectives, we have all agreed that not only *MUST* the document go forward as an IS (fast -due to the current TS having expired!), but in order to do so it *MUST* be reformatted to ISO specs.

I know that this group felt strongly that if that was required, that perhaps the work should take place with 3.1 instead of 3.0.1.  is that still the case?  Can I speak to the committee on behalf of the BG (since I am a member of the BG)?

We  should  absolutely  completely  forget  3.1.  The  successor of 3.0 is 3.2, as agreed  in the  PBG.

Also, even if ISO were to move 3.0.1 forward, there are no resources available to do the necessary reformatting – which is also blocking things.
