HL7 Specification Withdrawal Template

Use this form to request withdrawal of an Informative, STU, or Normative balloted or published protocol specification (i.e. an HL7 Standard, Implementation Guide, etc).

Date:

8/23/2018 

Official Document / Standard Name:

Current Status:SelectionStatus:Action to be taken (See Appendix A for guidance)


Balloted but not publishedWithdraw ballot record (applies to comment-only)

XPublishedWithdraw publication – requires "de-affirmation"[1] ballot at same level


NeitherClose project
Justification:

There are no UV-realm implementations for this standard. Implementations of a Canada Realm-specific nature exist. Ron Parker (current chair of HL7 Canada) asserts that there should not be an issue with the disposition of the Data Access Consent topic.  The messages we have are indeed in the Canadian realm and we can continue to support those as needed.

Comments

we don't have support from a publishing facilitator who could extricate the Data Consent Topic out of the Visio/Rosetree/Access database to stand alone (or to remove the Document Management Topic and leave the Data Consent Topic in the Medical Records domain) it would be easier for HL7 HQ to withdraw the domain from the Universal Realm. 

 


Upon receiving Work Group approval, e-mail the completed form to the TSC Project Manager (TSCPM@HL7.org) and HL7 CTO.  


De-affirmation Process and Checklist

 

[1] "De-affirmation" ballot is a limited scope ballot to request voters to approve the withdrawal of the published artifact, following regular HL7 NIB and ballot processes


  • Work Group approves and submits PSS indicating published artifact/standard to be withdrawn
  • Project Management Office (PMO) of HQ enters project into Project Insight and generates PI ID
  • Work Group routes PSS to co-sponsor, product management, US Realm, and Steering Division group(s) for approval
  • Work Group submits NIB for a withdrawal ballot at the same level the artifact was originally balloted before being published
  • Director of Technical Publications (DTP) of HQ generates ballot document to resemble a reaffirmation ballot where the subject matter of the ballot document contains a question similar to:
  • For the purposes of this ballot the question being asked is as follows:
  • Should the standard be reaffirmed as an American National Standard, withdrawn as an ANS, or subject to revision and brought to ballot as a new version?
  • Accordingly, voters should lodge their votes as follows:
    • Affirmative – Indicates support of reaffirmation withdrawal of the ANS
    • Negative – Indicates support of either withdrawing retaining or revising the ANS. If you do not support withdrawal, indicate your reasons in the comments accompanying your negative vote.
  • At the conclusion of the ballot, conduct reconciliation of any negative votes.
