The HL7 calendars page provides a one-page view of the high level HL7 deadlines for the current month; please use the navigation to move forward and backward by month. The calendar includes the Working Group Meeting dates, the Ballot dates, ballot content submission dates, the New Project Scope submission deadlines, Harmonization dates, Work Group co-chair responsibility dates and the dates for Working Group Meeting registration.

Ballot Content calendar refers to the important deadlines Work Groups need to meet if they are balloting any standards or documents.

Ballot Voting calendar reports important dates in the current ballot cycle. This calendar lets voters know when ballot sign up begins and ends, when voting opens and closes for the cycle, and when after the voting closes the Working Group Meeting opens. Please note that the actual ballot open and close dates for specific ballots may vary by a few days. Voters should always refer to the Ballot Announcement document posted on the Ballot Desktop where exceptions are noted.

Voters and balloters interested in specific ballots may need to refer to the global calendar or the text descriptions of some entries in the calendar for the full meaning of a deadline entry. For example, FHIR ballot developer needs to know that the Reconciliation deadline occurs three weeks before ballot opening, but not worry about the V3-specific initial content deadline four weeks before ballot opening.

If you prefer the look of the one-page annual calendar for long-term planning, see pubs_schedule_2019.pdf or pubs_schedule_2020.pdf
