Dear TA members,

Please find attached for Public Review ECSS-Q-ST-70-17C DIR1 (14 February 2017) “Space product assurance – Durability testing of coatings”.

NOTE: The WG proposed to shorten the title of the Standards from “Durability testing of coatings and surface finishes” to “Durability testing of coatings”. This change was already introduced in the DIR.

END of Public Review: 14 April 2017

DRR submission via the ECSS Website:
We want to encourage all reviewers to use for this Public Review new online ECSS DRR form.
On the ECSS Website you find on the page with this Draft for Public Review in the upper right corner the button “Create DRR”.

Please use this button to create your DRR.

To be able to create an online DRR you need to be logged in on the ECSS Website.
NOTE: It is important that your registration contains the correct “Affiliation” that means that reviewers from DLR should have selected as affilication DLR, reviewers from Industry their appropriate affilication (there are several options).

As this functionality has been beta-tested, this is opportunity to test it in real environment.
This new feature allows all registered users of the ECSS Website to submit their DRRs online via the “CRATE DRR” button on the respective website entry.

Our expectation is that all DRRs sent via the Public ECSS Website are:
1. transferred automatically into the DRR database in the TA MyTeams Website
2. the identified “Organization representatives” is informed by e-mail,
3. and a Task is created on the “Organization representatives” personal MyTeams website.

To confirm that the new system is working properly we would need you to send us in parallel the traditional Excel-file with your DRRs by the end of the Public Review.
This will allow the ES to confirm that what you have sent has effectively been received properly transferred into the new DRR database.

We expect that you have no objections to our approach that will secure the use of the website in the future.
And of course, if you have question to the new feature or the Public Review in general, please contact us.

Thank you for your cooperation.
Best regards

Klaus Ehrlich
ECSS Executive Secretariat
