the drop-down list will only display committees for which you are registered as Committee Manager, PC Secretary and/or support team in the Global Directory.
After the selection of the committee, the screen will automatically refresh to allow you to select the project to which the Committee Draft is related (this field is mandatory).
Select the project from the drop-down list :
The drop-down list is driven by data taken from ISO Projects database. If you cannot find your project in the list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

3 Questions and answers
This step displays the set of questions and answers that will be proposed during the ballot. Since the CD ballot is based on an ISO template for the questions and answers, you cannot change any of them.
Click the Create button to move to Step 4.
Note that until you click the Create button, you can go back in the process anytime by clicking the Previous button to modify the ballot data.
4 Reference document
This step allows you to add any reference document(s) to the ballot or any other link to useful resources.
The balloting portal does not automatically create N-documents on the ISOTC Server.
It is therefore recommended to first upload the relevant N-Documents for the ballot onto Documents platform, then download the N-document and attach it to the ballot.
Open the function menu next to Reference document and links and select: Add new reference document.
Select the file to be added from your desktop and click on Upload.
The CD ballot has been successfully created, with the reference document and will open automatically on the defined Start date. Click on the Finish button to terminate the wizard.
