2nd Revision of the XertifiX-Standard (2017-2018)

The second revision of the XertifiX standard took place from September 2017 to September 2018.

Every interested person was invited to participate in the revision process: They had to send a short e-mail with the subject “Participation in the revision process” to info [at] xertifix.de. They then received the draft of the revised standard and were able to submit amendments to it by December 2017. In addition, XertifiX actively contacted representatives of various stakeholder groups and asked for feedback on the standard draft.

After a first stakeholder round, in a second round those stakeholder groups, of which there was no feedback yet, were contacted again with the request for feedback.

The next revision (3) of the XertifiX standard will be 2023.
