The British Standards Institute (BSI) has issued two documents to guide corporations and the small to medium business market through the Year 2000 issue.
The BSI collaborated with BT, the Department of Trade's Year 2000 Task Force, Cap Gemini, Coopers & Lybrand and a number of large businesses in the UK to prepare the reports, which are expected to be available soon.
It has also prepared definitions of Year 2000 conformity requirements and rules, which businesses can use to check their systems.
According to the documents, organisations need to check and modify internally produced equipment and products. The BSI says: ?Care should be taken to distinguish between claims of conformity and the ability to demonstrate conformity.?
The BSI says that the definition of conformity is that neither performance nor functionality is affected by dates prior to, during and after the year 2000.
The reports recommend that independent legal advice should be sought by any person or organisation intending to enter into contractual commitments. The BSI is on +44 1908 220908.
