STEMG Terms of Reference

ASD Simplified Technical English, Specification ASD-STE100 (STE), is an international specification for the preparation of technical documentation in a controlled language.

ASD-STE100 is maintained by the Simplified Technical English Maintenance Group (STEMG), a working group of ASD. The STEMG is a non-profit group.

The mission of the STEMG is to control, develop, and maintain the ASD-STE100 specification.
The STEMG has these tasks:
• To keep ASD-STE100 up to date and to improve it as necessary.
• To process change requests (change forms), take the appropriate amendment actions, and release new issues of the specification as and when required.
• To report to the ASD Product Support Specification Group (PSSG) on current activities.
• To give advice and recommendations to STE users worldwide.
• To control the production of electronic master files for output and distribution.
• To distribute the STE specification.
• To promote STE in general.
• To protect the integrity of the ASD-STE100 specification.

The full set of the STEMG Terms of Reference was initially written in 2003 and fully revised in 2017.
The ToR are verified each year (latest published revision, January 2023).

The STEMG ToR are currently undergoing revision, therefore the remaining content of this page has been temporarily removed.
The updated version will be published as soon as possible.
