The standard for dates (DDP-08) was last revised in 2021 (ECE/CTCS/WP.7/2021/12). The standard includes a footnote under moisture content referring to a list of varieties contained in an annex that is not part of the 2021 nor 2015 versions of the standard. As no record of a decision to remove the annex could be found, the secretariat consulted the Bureau of the Specialized Section who decided to table the standard for review of the Specialized Section.
The document has also been aligned with the Standard layout for standards on dry and dried produce 2022, with changes marked in strike-through for deleted text and underline for added text.
The Specialized Section is invited to discuss whether to reinsert the annex or remove the related footnote in the standard for dates.
