To accommodate the cancellation of the May 2020 Work Group meetings, the following standards development changes will occur:

    Data Element Request Forms (DERF) and New Project Development Forms
    The DERF and New Project Development forms submission deadline of Wednesday, April 8, 2020 is no longer applicable and has been removed from the DERF Project Calendar. DERFs and New Project forms received since the February 2020 Work Group meetings AND by the submission deadline of Friday, July 10, 2020 will be reviewed and voted on at the August 5 - 7, 2020 Work Group meeting. The current DERF Form must be used.

    Ballots and Public Comments
    The three February 2020 Data Maintenance Ballots and Public Comments, WG090015, WG110084 and WGMC0009, were released on March 13, 2020 and will close on April 27, 2020. Any comments received on these ballots/public comments will be reviewed and categorized by the membership at the August 2020 Work Group meeting. The categorization of these comments will determine whether any of the three ballots/public comments will require re-circulation after the August 2020 Work Group meetings. Once the ballot/public comment period closes and the results tabulated, the results plus any comments received for each ballot/public comment will be posted in the Member Portal on the applicable Work Group page.

    Data Dictionary and External Code List (ECL) Publications
    Since review and categorization of comments received on the February 2020 ballots/public comments are delayed until the August 2020 Work Group meeting, there will be no July 2020 Data Dictionary and ECL publications.
