Hi Judy,

Too early for any outcomes form Standards Australia - I'll post to EOWG
when there is something concrete. The Committee idea arose so that
Australia could formally participate in things like ISO/IEC JTC1 SWG-A.

Other recent/current activity that someone from Europe might be able to
report on are two CEN workshops:

CEN Workshop on Web Accessibility Certification" (CEN/ISSS WS/ WAC):
sp &

CEN/ISSS Workshop on Document Processing for Accessibility (DPA):

Usability Net also has a good list of International standards for HCI
and usability: http://www.usabilitynet.org/tools/r_international.htm

Are there any links that you could share with the list about this? This
just the kind of information that I was hoping people might be
to share, and I'm sure that people would be interested to hear &/or read
more about this.
