At its meeting in November, 2013, Subcommittee B02.07 supported, in principle, the goal of converting several or all of its standards to combined standards. While SC B02.07 has a policy governing development of such combined (dual unit) standards, the policy does not cover all of the issues that might be involved. As a first step towards discovering such issues and to develop appropriate responses, B02.07 approved the opening of two WK items, one to convert a product specification and the second to convert the governing General Requirements specification for that product specification. The two specifications selected are B407 and B829. These two specifications were selected because they are widely used and because both are in need of their five-year reviews. This action addresses conversion of B829.
