De-affirmation Process and Checklist

 

"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Work Group approves and submits PSS indicating published artifact/standard to be withdrawn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Should the standard be reaffirmed as an American National Standard, withdrawn as an ANS, or subject to revision and brought to ballot as a new version?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.
