- The Reprint method is used for adopting international standards as Estonian standards in English.
- Adoption can be initiated by any interested party.
- The drafting process is described in the guide: EVS JUHEND 5 (see also guide EVS JUHEND 4).
How does the adoption by reprint method work?
- To initiate the adoption of an international standard, you should submit a formal drafting proposal.
- Upon approval of the proposal, the preparation of a standard draft is agreed with a committee registered at the Estonian Centre for Standardisation and Accreditation.
- The standard draft text, approved by the committee, is submitted to the Estonian Centre for Standardisation and Accreditation for conducting the public enquiry. A notification about the start of the enquiry is published in EVS Bulletin and the text of the standard draft is made available for reading and commenting in the comments portal of the Estonian Centre for Standardisation and Accreditation. The public enquiry lasts for 60 days.
- Once the public enquiry is over, a summary is made of the received comments/proposals and the received input is analysed.
- A standard draft that has achieved consensus in the committee is submitted to the Estonian Centre for Standardisation and Accreditation to be confirmed and published as a standard.
