Note: What is included in "formal education" varies depending on the standard user's jurisdictional domain.

Excluded:

  • The development of standards in the field of information technologies for learning, education and training.

The TC will take into account people with disadvantages and/or special needs. The TC will take into account ISO's global relevance policy as regards the parts of the world not directly represented in the TC work.
