OASIS gains ANSI accreditation

OASIS, the standards group that developed the OpenDocument Format, has completed the process of becoming accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The Standards Blog covers the announcement. "Receiving accreditation accomplishes two goals: first, it provides a third-party validation that the SSO in question meets a set of articulated goals that have been internationally agreed to be valuable and important. And second, it qualifies the SSO to have its standards be considered by ISO/IEC for adoption, without having to resort to one of the less formal processes available to consortia (such as the Publicly Available Standard, or PAS process – for which OASIS qualified in 2005, in order to submit its OpenDocument Format for adoption as an ISO/IEC standard)."
