As described in Chapter 2, standards are generally produced by experts in the field using a deliberate and rigorous process. The writers and the developing organizations make every effort to produce a product that is clear, concise, and complete. Unfortunately, knowledge is incomplete and even with the best of intentions it can happen that there is a need for further interpretation, explanation, or relief.
