Persian Information Interchange Standard

The FarsiWeb Project Group is proud to announce the final version of "Information Technology — Persian Information Interchange and Display Mechanism, using Unicode". This standard was prepared under a contract with High Council of Informatics of Iran (HCI), and was supported by Science and Arts Foundation, HCI, and Sharif University of Technology.

The first draft was presented at a seminar hosted by HCI on September 12, 2001, and has been heavily revised based on comments from linguistic and computing experts and developers. It was then approved by the National Standards Committee of Computers and Data Processing of Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran to become a national standard, on its two meetings on March 10 and May 8, 2002.

Any comments should be sent to the FarsiWeb Project Group directly, at or to the FarsiWeb discussion list, after subscription. All these comments will be considered in the next ammendments to the text of the standard.
