Chairmanship of TC 100
 

TC 100 Chairman, Mr. Mark Hyman term of office will end after the TC 100 meeting in Seattle this October. Mr. Hyman has served as TC 100 Chair since 2001. An AC document, 100/1670/AC was circulated announcing that Mr. David Felland would be nominated as his successor. It was reported that there was no opposition from National Committees to his nomination. The final approval is awaiting SMB voting.

 
DMT and TC 100 procedures
 

The Secretary reported that the basic parts of TC 100 Guidelines and Procedures have been included in the latest version of ISO/IEC Directives, IEC Supplement as Annex M.

 
Webconferencing facilities
 

The Secretary introduced AC/18/2010 document which describes the use of the web conference tool. It was stated that the meeting host who wishes to use the tool needs to contact Mr. Cocimarov to set up a virtual meeting.

 
New contact person for French NC
 

The Secretary informed the AGM that the contact person of French National Committee has been changed to Ms. Carmen PIERRE from Mr. Daniel VOISIN.

 
TC 100 Fast Standardization Procedure
 

The Secretary reported on the request from DMT secretary to consider using the normal Fast Track process instead of the TC 100 Fast Standardization Procedure. The Secretary clarified the difference between normal Fast Track process and TC 100 Fast Standardization Procedure. He explained that the TC 100 Fast Standardization Procedure can be applied to a non-existing specification and does not need to specify the FDIS stage. Upon examination of the document listing development time, Mr. Woodgate commented that the significantly short development time of 10.2 months by the TC 100 Fast Standardization Procedure should be recognized rather than the average developing time. It was agreed to continue usage of the TC 100 Fast Standardization Procedure. The Secretary would respond to the DMT secretary accordingly.

 
Environmental WG of TC 108
 

Dr. Hirakawa introduced the background of the issue and the Secretary reviewed the current work items of IEC TC 108. It was noted that the issue is whether the Environmental WG should be moved to TC 100 from TC 108. The direction to move the Environmental WG of TC 108 to TC 100 was agreed upon by the AGM. Where this work would fall under the current or future structures were discussed. Mr. Fairhurst volunteered to examine the TC 108 Environmental WG documents and whether the work meets the scope of TC 100 and specifically TA 12. It was agreed that the TC 100 AGM would prepare a new TA structure plan incorporating this WG as well as an existing technical area examination for discussion at the next AGM meeting in Seattle.

 
Normative references in TC 100
 

AES, SMPTE, ITU-R, ITU-T, IEEE, IETF, and ETSI were recognized as the organizations whose specifications can be cited as normative references in TC 100 documents according to the decision at the last plenary meeting in Tel Aviv. The Secretary reported that there was no need to discuss further procedural actions at this time. It was proposed to add CENELEC, W3C, and CIE as additional normative reference organizations. The TC 100 secretariat will prepare a DC document to obtain approval from NCs.

 
Review existing liaisons and New requested liaisons
 


It was reported and confirmed that Mr. Jeff Howell has been appointed as the liaison representative to ATSC. The USNC would seek bilateral liaison ship from the ATSC.
It was agreed to establish a category D liaison ship with the USB Implementers Forum. TC 100 secretariat would submit a QP to SMB for approval. The Chairman requested Mr. Wood of the USB Implementers Forum to make a presentation at the plenary meeting in Seattle.

 
Liaison matter SC 48B
 


The Secretary reported that TC 100 had just received a liaison statement back from SC 48B regarding the connector used in the 2mm barrel type battery charger interface. TC 100 requested SC 48B to replace a current connector specification, IEC 61076-2-102 with the connector specified in the 2mm barrel type battery charger interface. It was reported that SC 48B would not replace any connector specification with the 2mm barrel type but SC 48B would add the specification as IEC 61076-2-111.
