The meeting finished on 25 September, however we will have to wait for a few more weeks to hear if there will be a Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) ISO 45001, or whether there will be a move to direct publication of an agreed and accepted ISO 45001 standard. The head of the technical committee, Jose Alcorta, said the hope is to publish the new standard by March 2018. It is considered that the standard is unlikely to be substantially different from the draft standard, DIS2. The process of establishing this new standard was started in 2013. Since that date there have been shifts in the political landscape and changes to trading patterns and alignments, notably Brexit and policies such as "America first". These changes underline the importance for establishing norms and standards to create conformity in operating procedures and management that provide for health and safety and facilitate trade flows. "What is good for health and safety is good for Business and Trade too!"
