The ToR are clear and a good starting point for the further process for updating the data specs. However, just a friendly amendment to the workflow:
ToR (now): “If agreed by majority of members of the sub-group the proposal for follow up actions is sent by the Facilitator of the sub-group to the MIG-T and MIG-P for consideration.”
Proposal: It would be feasible to submit change proposals only to MIG-P if the legislation is concerned. The update of the Technical Guidance documents should be considered (decided?) by the MIG-T only. This would speed up the process when only minor technical changes are necessary.

I am sorry I do not agree. MIWP-14 is a sub-group of the MIG-T and I think that all communication should go through the MIG-T. The advantage of this is that the proposals get a wider airing than just the sub-group prior to the submission to the MIG-P. Also the MIG-P have the comfort that the issues have already been considered by the MIG-T.

Potentially you have misunderstood my point. Sorry for not expressing this precisely enough.
It is not my intention to bypass the MIG-T. The MIG-T should of course discuss all issues coming from the sub-group. My point was to allow also the decision of minor technical changes by the MIG-T alone, without having the same consideration in the MIG-P again. This would speed up the process for minor technical changes of the data specifications and allow the MIG-P to focus on the “big issues” when the proposed changes have an impact on the legislation.
