To: SteerCom <>,

FGDC Steering Committee and Coordination Group Members,

The Coastal and Marine Ecological Classification Standard (CMECS) has
been officially endorsed by the FGDC Steering Committee, thus becoming
a standard endorsed by the entirety of the Federal Geographic Data
Committee.  This action was taken after the Coordination Group
recommended the CMECS standard to the Steering Committee for
endorsement.  The Steering Committee Vote closed on May 11, 2012.
There were 21 affirmative votes to endorse (where non-responses were
counted as endorsements) and one vote to abstain.  There were no votes
against endorsement of the standard.

Once the final document formatting is complete, the final version will
be posted to the FGDC-endorsed standards website.


Ivan B. DeLoatch, Executive Director
Federal Geographic Data Committee
