Standards Australia Draft – AS/NZS 1067.1 SUNGLASS

Dear Member

 

After much argument in committee CS-053, they agreed the draft AS/NZS 1067 Sunglass is OK to go forward for the final “sign-off” in the committee ballot.

 

This ballot is now in progress and deadline for voting is 28 August 2106.

 

Please let me know well before then if you have any questions so we can put them to our reps.

 

Otherwise I expect our reps will vote positive so the standard can be published this year.

 

There are a few areas where we finally had to settle for compromises which made the AS/NZS 1067.1 sunglass standard slightly different from the ISO sunglass standard ISO12312.1.

 

The sunglass test methods standard AS1067.2 is exactly the same as the ISO12311.

 

While all the ODMA reps did what they could to make the Aussie standard same as ISO, we had to give a bit because the old Australian standard 1067 was very different from ISO.

 

We are getting the standards which are used everywhere in the world and in Australia/NZ much closer together. Hopefully the sunglass standards will fully converge in the foreseeable future – either Australia moves closer to ISO and/or ISO moves closer to Australia.

 

The draft is attached.

 

Kind Regards

FRAME STANDARD AND IP AGREEMENT

Dear Members

I am pleased to advise that the development work on the ODMA Frame Standard is now complete.  Agreement of a standard for definition of optical frames in all software packages utilised in the Australian optical industry has been reached.

Attached is the Frame Standard in an Excel file with notes on each field to help identify the cell contents.  This means you will no longer need to supply several different file formats to each of the PMS providers.

Also enclosed is an IP Agreement for your use.

The IP agreement is for use  between each ODMA member and the PMS Provider.
It is for ODMA members  assurance that the frame data will not be used or passed on to any other entity for their commercial use.  It is not for the protection of designs, patents or other IP which members should  already have taken care of but to state that the member will retain ownership of the data on the centralised server and protect it from being passed on.

ODMA has paid for the PMS development work and the legal fees involved in drafting the agreement for the benefit of the whole industry.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind Regards
