At the annual meeting in Portland, Oregon this year, the Technical Subcommittee on Encoded Archival Description (TS-EAS) of the Society of American Archivists agreed to undertake a revision of the standard EAC-CPF.

The subcommittee is calling for proposed changes to the current version of EAC-CPF. To ensure the greatest possible input from users of EAC-CPF and other relevant standards, the deadline for change proposals is 11 December 2017. At that time, all proposals will be made publicly available through the EAC-CPF GitHub portal.

Anonymous responses will not be considered. All change proposals will be made publicly available, with attribution, through the GitHub Portal as established during the EAD revision process. E-mail addresses are asked for so that we may contact respondents for clarification, but will not be shared.
