Individual participants are encouraged to notify TIA of any patent(s) or published pending patent application(s) of which they are aware that may be essential to the practice of a proposed TIA Publication, including requirements introduced through normative references, early on in the development to reduce the possibility for delays in the development process and increase the likelihood that the proposed TIA Publication will become a Standard.
