The BACnet Interest Group has a comprehensive program planned for the year 2000. Focal points are training and the development of specification aids to help in the writing of high quality and implementable specifications. Certification based on conformance testing will ensure quality. For this, the necessary documentation and test set-ups will need to be defined. Appearances at trade fairs and symposia will increase familiarity with BACnet as well as heighten its acceptance. These activities will not be focused solely on Germany. The creation of working groups in different countries will take into account the needs of country-specific markets. These activities will be coordinated within the BIG.
