Despite several attempts to revise this document it has not been possible to do it as the resources and the needed expertise were not available in the AGE-2C committee. Intent of the committee for a future revision would be to make a major update and harmonisation with EN 1915-1 and ISO 6966-2 standards. Therefore, until the time comes when such revision can be done, the document is put in the "Stabilized" category.
