Earlier this year, Editors Ottawa-Gatineau member Gael Spivak connected the International Plain Language Federation’s Standards Committee with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The ISO committee that works on standards related to language is called the ISO Technical Committee 37: Language and Terminology. After she attended an ISO/TC 37 meeting in Ottawa, both committees requested that Gael join them to help further their work. The technical committee recently voted to approve work starting on an ISO standard for plain language. The expected publication date of the standard is October 2022.
