Exceptions for a specific ballot are listed with that ballot description.
Please note that the following details about specific items are subject to review by the HL7 Technical Steering Committee:
- Approval of all projects initiating any ballot item
- Approval of titles for new candidate and draft standards and other documents
- Approval of new candidate Standards for Trial Use
- Approval of ballot level for those items moving to Normative ballot
Any changes from the initial details in this announcement will be identified in the ballot announcement document released when this ballot cycle opens.
All those engaged in balloting should be informed that any subsequent ballot of material previously balloted at the normative level will supersede all previous ballots. Any votes or comments from previous ballots will not count towards the new normative ballot; for any comments to be considered again, voters will need to cast a new ballot with comments.
