Paper Abstract

An unofficial discussion of the status of interconnect standardization is presented. It includes an over-view of U.S. and international status in such groups as the EIA P-6 and IEC SC-46E committees. The rationale for choosing the 4 tier system is explained, along with a table showing the structure of the system, as Basic, Generic, Sectional and Detail specifications. The implications of the recent OMB Circular A-119 on Federal Participation in the Development and Use of Voluntary Standards is discussed, particularly as it amplifies the already pressing question of adequate level of resource commitment to the standards question activity.
