AES Standards Drafts for Comment

Information on any current and recent Calls for Comment is shown in the bulletins below. Each call-for-comment bulletin links to a call-for-comment page, which in turn links to the draft document and a record of the comments that have been received to date.

Calls for Comment are open for six weeks from the date of publication. Comments on documents that have completed their comment periods are also available.

NOTE: The six-week comment period came into operation as a result of an AES policy change notified to the AESSC at the plenary meeting in Budapest, 2012-04-29.
