This is a friendly reminder that we need all of you to review and provide comments on the SISO-STD-003.3-Draft-V0.8 Guide for Base Object Model (BOM) Use and Implementation. This document is out for its first 30-day review period, and we are about halfway into that period.  The review period ends 30 June 2004. 
 
SISO-STD-003.3-Draft-V0.8 can be accessed from the following link: http://www.sisostds.org/stdsdev/Tracking_Final/Doc_Index.cfm?Doc_ID=32 .  All comments against the specification must be made via the SISO web-based review process in order to be officially accepted, counted, and tracked.  Upon closure of this first review period, the Drafting Group will be given time to establish recommended responses to the comments. The recommended responses will then be vetted and adjudicated through the PDG. Based on the PDG's acceptance (either 'as is' or 'with modification') or rejection of the comment and its associated recommendation, the DG will update the specification and present the updated version to the Assigned Reviewers for verification and accountability checks.  Once the Assigned Reviewers have provided their acceptance and approval, the updated document will be re-published to the PDG.
 
Remember that this specification is only as good as we make it, your involvement is needed and desired.  All comments are welcome and all comments will be professionally and carefully considered.
