Two proposed international standards of interest to the
preservation/conservation community are now out for review. NISO
members are invited to review and comment on these Committee Drafts

    CD 15659
    "Paper and boards intended for long term storage in contact with
    documents--Discoloration test"
    Describes a standard test which measures the tendency of a paper
    or board to cause discoloration over-time when adjacent to paper
    documents (including pieces of art).
    Deadline for comments: June 15, 2000

    CD 16245
    "Archive boxes and file covers for paper and parchment
    Specifies requirements for the environmental, technical, and
    handling of file covers (folded paper or board used to store or
    separate documents) and archives boxes. This standard does not
    apply to storage of photographic materials.
    Deadline for comments: June 15, 2000

To request a copy of these CD's send an email message to

These standards were developed by ISO TC 46 Subcommittee 10 on

be considered in formulating the U.S. response to these proposed
international standards.  Return your comments by email to  NISO  by
June 15, 2000.
