Public Review

The SAWE provides this public forum for review and comment on draft documents, as well as to keep public advised of SAWE’s activities. This includes project proposals, committee drafts, public drafts of recommended practices, standards, handbooks, textbooks, guidelines, etc. that are under development. The documents listed below are typically available as read-only PDF files to be used strictly for the purpose of review and comment. MS/Word format documents may be available under special conditions.

There are three possible ways for you to provide document comments:
1) Use the webform below.
2) For extensive commenting you may find it easier to download an excel file of this webform. This makes it easier to input multiple comments. Upon completion of your commenting in the excel file, upload the file here (.xls and .xlsx file type only):
