Hi Renato, all,

Great to see this project kick-off.

Just a thought - We may need to consider what we mean by
'standard' when referencing works and developments. A
standard may be under development, promoted, implied,
adopted and/or ratified. A standard may not be 'the'
standard beyond a certain group (i.e. Firezone is the
standard emergency information and communications interface
used by 2,600 Fire Brigades and more than 70,000 response
personnel in my home state. The contained language is
arguably more of an adopted standard than some others
promoted by simple virtue of use and coverage. I think we
may need to acknowledge where and by whom certain standards
are accepted and applied). There are many such industry and
emergency sector-specific standards to consider, as there
are standards ratifying authorities.

I would also like to support Gavin's suggestion re the
importance of understanding and incorporating affiliated
(and sometimes legislatively superior) standards to this
initiative, and acknowledge that many are under development.
Eg. Prof David Cliff (QLD University) is currently leading
an ACARP funded project to improve the way information is
collected and communicated in mine and associated
emergencies (if agreeable I will invite Professor Cliff to
join this group). 

Please find listed below a few of the relevant standards
available through the International Standards Association
and SAI Global (ISO's etc.).
