    The final voting for ISO 11000 has been completed and it was positive, which means the standard will go forward. However, there are a number of comments to be addressed with the International committee before publication.

    This is a significant outcome for Collaborative Working generally and for ICW specifically. The support/guidance from members of the ICW Management Board has been key to this decision.

    ICW will be holding a high profile launch event in March – details to follow.
