ASTM WK45132

    Revision of E1708 - 95(2007) Standard Practice for Electronic Interchange of Color and Appearance Data

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1708 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: E12.04 | Committee E12 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK45132

    1. Rationale

    After prolonged discussion of E1708 Standard Practice for Electronic Interchange of Color and Appearance Data at several ASTM E12 meetings and examination of related standards, it seems prudent to ballot a revision to E1708 that abandons the connection to CGATS documents. In particular, the current CGATS.5 no longer addresses interchange of data, and is hence irrelevant to E1708. If we down-scope E1708 to include only ASCII communication (not XML), and also remove the references to CGATS.5, this will allow E1708 to proceed as an updated standard, without further modification.
