BS 8766 'Names and identifiers of individuals and groups. Data structure for interoperability' was published in 2004, and is up for regular review. The AGI Standards Committee would like to hear from any members with experience of using this standard, good or bad, to contribute to the right decision about the British Standard - whether it should be confirmed as is, revised, or withdrawn.
