VERSION v01 -- In 1998 to 1999, the TS_3.RMC was accepted as a User Comment Draft, and distributed for review and comment. In November 1999, the Joint Committee accepted 1207 v01 as a Recommended Standard. In October 2000, Standards Bulletin B0056 sent 1207 v01.16 for balloting. In May 2001, 1207 version 01.16 was Jointly Approved. (AASHTO approval was in February 2001; ITE approval was in May 2001; and NEMA approval was in May 2001.)

In February 2002, the printed version of the Joint Standards Publication NTCIP 1207:2001 was available for order. NTCIP 1207:2001 is version v01.17, November 2001. The printed version included updates to the Foreward and Introduction.

VERSION v02 -- In June 2005, onsite testing of the Salt Lake City ramp metering system was conducted by Battelle. The Battelle findings, and input from other ramp metering deployers, prompted the RMC WG to draft the version v02 revisions. In May 2007, the Joint Committee accepted 1207 v02.06 as a User Comment Draft. In June 2007, Standards Bulletin B0122 sent 1207 v02.06b out for review and comment.
