This standard is being balloted for withdrawal with no replacement becauseFrom: Steven L. Hudson / Tom OTooleNew Committee F32 standard F3029-13 Guide For Level I GPS Wilderness Navigator (GPS-IW) Endorsement was approved on July 1, 2013. During the balloting of this standard on the F32(13-01) ballot it received significant recommendations that the document should be broken down into two parts. A negative vote would have stopped the approval of this standard, but a comment cannot.The points of the comments were agreed upon by the technical contact, and later by subcommittee F32.03 at their June 1, 2013 meeting. This process of breaking into 2 standards has already begun and two new draft standards have been registered and are in process to be balloted in F32.03 as follows:WK42999 New Guide for Level I Wilderness GPS Use (GPS-IW) Endorsement WK43000 New Guide for Level II Wilderness GPS Use (GPS-IIW) Endorsement This request is for your approval to withdraw the original standard F3029-13. I do not want to wait until these two documents listed above are completely through the balloting system before withdrawing F3029-13 as I believe it would add to the confusion, so I am requesting that standard F3029-13 be withdrawn now.
Ballot Item Approved as F3029-2013 and Pending Publication
