In 1979, the International Standards Organization (ISO)
formed a technical committee (TC172) to work on
international standards for optics and optical instruments.
As part of the committee's work, an optical drawing
standard was developed and will be published in draft form
before the end of the year. Because all the countries that
have large optical industries are participating in writing
these standards and the various delegations have reached a
