Termination of a TAG
A proposal to terminate a U.S. TAG may be made by directly and materially affected interests. The proposal shall be submitted in writing to ANSI and to the U.S. TAG Administrator and shall include the reasons why the U.S. TAG should be terminated. The U.S. TAG shall take action in accordance with 7.6. Information regarding the termination of a U.S. TAG shall be promptly provided to the secretariat of the associated ISO committee. In the event that the U.S. holds the secretariat for an ISO committee for which the U.S. TAG is considering termination, the organization serving as secretariat shall be informed promptly and shall submit their position regarding termination of the TAG to ANSI and to the TAG Administrator.
As a result of action taken in accordance with 7.6, should termination of the TAG be approved, notification of such action shall be announced in Standards Action. The announcement shall note that dissolution of the TAG will result in the U.S. relinquishing its P- (participant) status in the international activity. Also, if the U.S. serves as international secretariat, the announcement shall state that the U.S. will resign as international secretariat. The appropriate notification(s) shall be sent to ISO Central Secretariat regarding the change in status, and the relinquishment of the secretariat, if applicable.
