NTCIP 9001 v04 is an informative NTCIP publication, but NTCIP 9001 v04 is not an NTCIP standard and is, therefore, not to be considered binding.

PRIOR VERSION HISTORY -- In 1997, the first version of "NTCIP Guide" was prepared by members of the Joint Committee on the NTCIP. The first Guide included just four chapters and four appendices.

In 1999, and using the new document number scheme, the NTCIP 9001 v02.06, "The NTCIP Guide," was a Recommended Information Report available on the Website. The version was prepared by a project team.

In 2002, the next major revision v03.02 of NTCIP 9001, prepared by project team, was available as a Recommended Information Report.


2009 -- after the two-year delay in releasing version v04, there is no current work item to start a new major version v05.
