Please be aware that the messages that are circulating on social media about the "imminent publication any day now " of SANS10400-XA (2nd edition) are not true.
Due to technical content that needed to be updated after SANS10400-XA was published as a Draft SA Standard in 2020, it had to be referred back to the Working Group to effect the changes. After this process was completed, the Technical Committee (TC060) had to approve the standard to be published as a DRAFT again.
The current situation is that the document is with the editors at SABS, after which it has to come back to the Standards Writer for SANS10400, the Convener of the Working Group, and the Chairperson of the Technical Committee for a final check before it can be published again as a Draft SA Standard.
So, what will happen within the next month or two is the publication of the second draft of SANS10400-XA to allow the public to comment on the content of the document. The comment period is 60 days from the publication of the draft. Once the comment period has ended, the comments will be collated, forwarded to the Convener, and then discussed at a Working Group Meeting.
If no comments of a technical nature are received, and the Chairperson of the Technical Committee (TC060) has signed the required documentation, the standard will be ready for publication as a South African National Standard. If comments of a technical nature are received again, the process may have to start all over again.
Any queries regarding the publication of a SANS10400 standard should be addressed to the Committee Secretariat - email@example.com who will then forward it to the relevant person for action.
