The third revision of the XertifiX standard will take place from September 2023 to September 2024.

Anyone interested is invited to take part in the revision process: Please write a short email with the subject “Participation in the revision process” to info {[at] at } xertifix .de. You will then receive the draft of the revised standard and can submit proposed changes to it by January 2024. In addition, XertifiX actively writes to representatives of various stakeholder groups and asks for feedback on the draft standard.

After a first stakeholder round, in a second round those stakeholder groups from which no feedback has yet been given will be contacted again with a request for feedback.
