With the passing of the 3rd Plenary Meeting of ISO/TC172 in Las Vegas in April, it is appropriate to recap the work of this very active optical standards Technical Committee (TC).
Twelve countries participate actively in the TC, while 17 other have observer status and three scientific bodies, including ICO, have liaisons. In the last year, 383 experts from 15 countries participated in formulating optical standards as part of 7 active subcommittees (SCs) within TC172. Some 91% of the experts were from five countries; France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
