CLSI publishes clinical laboratory standards, but these days the rate at which the standards are appearing is painfully slow. So recently, CLSI came out with a revised, streamlined process. From what I can see the process hasn’t changed at all other than certain names. Thus:
Area committee->consensus committee
Area committee observer-> Area committee reviewer
Subcommittee->document development committee
Subcommittee advisor-> document development contributor
Subcommittee observer -> document development contributor
New names won’t help, better leadership is needed. The key individual is the chairholder of the area committee (now consensus committee). When I was head of the Evaluation Protocols area committee (now consensus committee) I got three documents published that each had no action for 13 years! And I did this without new names.
