Let’s talk about the ISO 29119 Standards

W16     Start Time : 13:45     End Time : 14:30

Since the release of the ISO 29119 standards, there has been quite a lot of discussion going on about them; some hate them, others can live with them and some even like them. But if we follow the theme of this year’s EuroSTAR of “walk the talk”, we need to talk. Even though this session is in a “discussion track”, we want to invite you to a talk about the standards.

The session will be run by Stuart Reid, the convener of the ISO 29119 working group, and Anne Mette Hass who was the editor for Part 3. They have travelled the long road together from the initiation of the standards to where they are today.

The session will start with a short presentation of how the standards were produced, how they can be used in different settings and what new testing standards are being developed.

The rest of the session is up to you. We hope for a fruitful talk that will enlighten both us and you on how the standards have already been used and can be used. Tell us about your difficulties with them and the successes you may have had, and let’s share our experiences with respect for each other’s viewpoints.
