POISED Working Group Formed

August 1992
RFC 1640

In response to a number of issues that first arose at INET ’92 in Kobe, including those involving the relationship between the Internet Society, the IAB (Internet Architecture Board), the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force), and the IRTF (Internet Research Task Force), the IETF establishes the first Process for Organization of Internet Standards Working Group (POISED). In June 1994, RFC 1640 offers an account by Working Group Chair Steve Crocker of the factors that led to the Working Group’s formation and of its work in progress.
