+ - South Africa appeals against ISO's OOXML decision->

Submitted by

michael186 writes "The South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) has filed an appeal against the ISO decision to accept Microsoft's Office OpenXML (OOXML) as an international standard. South Africa is the first country to appeal the decision within the stipulated 60-day appeal period.

In a letter signed by CEO Martin Kuscus, SABS says it is appealing on the basis of flawed procedures in the ballot resolution meeting (BRM) held in February. SABS also says that it is concerned that there is an increasing trend of international organisations being able to circumvent the consensus-based decision making of the ISO and IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission)."
