Draft Standards at Enquiry Stage

Before a standard can be published, it is an international practice that drafts are available for public comments. This will give any interested party the opportunity to influence the content of a standard. A list of titles of these draft standards and their respective enquiry deadlines are available from our Standards Library – contact the Librarian on (+356) 2395 2000.

Comments are to be sent either by e-mail or by mail to the Head of Standardization on e-mail standards@mccaa.org.mt or by mail to the address below. All comments will be taken into consideration and discussed in the appropriate SMI technical committee/s.

Draft Standards at Voting Stage

The MCCAA is required to express the national vote as to whether a standard is acceptable or not. This is the last possibility for interested parties to make their comments on a draft standard. A list of titles of draft standards at voting stage and their respective voting deadlines are available from our Standards Library – contact the Librarian on (+356) 2395 2000.

Comments are to be sent either by e-mail or by mail to the Head of Standardization on e-mail standards@mccaa.org.mt or by mail to the following address below. The Authority will take into consideration all comments before expressing its national vote.
