Working documents found in Documents are intended for committees and their experts to access and share content. Such content is in principle not publicly available therefore people without a role in the committee. To allow committees to expose promotional and support material to an external public audience, Committee Managers, Secretaries, Convenors and their support team can create and manage documents from the Public information folder. This document will then be automatically exposed on www.iso.org's committee webpages.
