Market surveys

The technical and commercial documents are circulated during two weeks among the SC members for comments. The comments are collected by the Chairperson and integrated, with the agreement of the technical person responsible for the MS, into the final version. Once approved by the Specification Committee, the documents are sent by the Purchasing Office to a selection of firms.
