The ATC ISO Standards Commenting Group

The ATC contributes to the development of ISO standards for the language service industry through the BSI, as the UK’s National Standards Body, liaising with the translator associations ITI and CIOL on ISO standards development.

The ATC’s ISO Standards Commenting Group reviews and comments on ISO standards under development and votes on the UK’s stance during the various drafting stages towards publication of the international standard. The group is headed by the ATC’s standards expert Chris Cox, and has LSP representatives from a variety of UK-based companies providing valuable input to the standards development process.

Getting involved in the commenting group is a great way of staying abreast of standards development in the language industry, of obtaining free R&D material for use within the member company and to influence the way these emerging standards are defined and used in the future.

The group welcomes all new ATC members with open arms. Please get in touch with ATC Certification at to get involved and make a difference!
