SMPTE (the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) is an internationally-recognized standards developing organization. Headquartered and incorporated in the United States of America, SMPTE has members in over 80 countries on six continents. SMPTE’s Engineering Documents, including Standards, Recommended Practices, and Engineering Guidelines, are prepared by SMPTE’s Technology Committees. Participation in these Committees is open to all with a bona fide interest in their work. SMPTE cooperates closely with other standards-developing organizations, including ISO, IEC and ITU. SMPTE Engineering Documents are drafted in accordance with the rules given in its Standards Operations Manual.
This Standards Administrative Guideline forms an adjunct to the use and interpretation of the SMPTE Standards Operations Manual. In the event of a conflict, the Operations Manual shall prevail.

This Administrative Guideline sets forth various details in support of the Standards Operations Manual, Section 8, “Liaisons, Delegates and Rapporteurs” specifically including the lists of organizations, delegates and rapporteurs.
AG-10 comprises this document that lists the organizations and the contacts plus the following two elements:
The purpose of this separation is as follows:
The Standards Operations Manual states that the Director of Engineering maintains this AG. This task may be delegated.
As the information in the tables is a matter of factual accuracy only and does not alter the operation of the Standards program or the Standards Committee, the tables themselves in all the parts of this AG are maintained analogous to an “administrative register” - they are updated from time to time and posted without Standards Committee approval. Changes to non-tabular parts of this document require Standards Committee approval. The following procedures shall guide the maintenance of the tables:
New organizations should be added when either:
Organizations should be deleted when either: 1) a formal liaison agreement terminates; or 2) there has been no communication with the organization in at least two years. The latter does not apply to organizations with which we have a formal liaison agreement in effect.
Information should be updated periodically as needed when appointments and contact information details change.
The Standards Committee shall be notified in advance of the following events:
