Dear Gippo, 
I agree that the "Purpose of the Agency Review" shall be (briefly) 
assessed by CESG, aiming at improving its definition in the  Org&Proc 
To this end, the CESG discussion may address, between others,  aspects 
like,  e.g.:
-       to which audience shall the document under A.R. be exposed ? 
-       PID discussions  : can a PID be moved - in form of RID  - to the 
Agency Review? It shall be stressed that RIDs can be “rejected” by the WG, 
whilst PID can’t.
-       Escalation in cases where the PID condition(s) is(are) not met

I will put the this topic in the CESG Agenda.
Kind regards

Subject:        [CESG] Agenda Item for next CESG Meeting: Agency Reviews

Dear Margherita,
        I would appreciate if we could quickly discuss at next meeting 
about the "Scope of and Agency Review" and may be conclude for adding 
something in the Org&Proc Book CCSDS A02.1-Y-4.

Just to introduce the subject I think that - despite there are formal 
requirements about neeed for resolution, compliance with publication 
manual, etc. - there is no place in the Org&Proc making clear the purpose 
of an Agency Review.
Org&Proc states the purpose for doing a prototype implementation but it 
says nothing specific about Agency Review.
Conversely it states that a "review budget  must  be  agreed  upon  by the 
 CESG  and  the  CMC  before  publishing  the  first  issue  of  a  Draft 
Recommended  Standard" (and I guess we are surely guilty about this 
:o).because formal agency reviews consume resources.

I think that stating clearly the purpose of an Agency Review is required 
not only to create a common understanding (that I am not sure is currently 
present) but also to help all of us for our work with CESG Polls etc

Best regards

Gian Paolo
