Re: New ETR Format (LabGram#027)
Please discard my improper wording "some validators never see ETRs".
This wording is incorrect. It is extreme and too subjective.
I apologize this.
And, I trust, all of your responses are true.
Well, I do not intend to point out any specific validators and schemes in
I thought validators would select samples of workunit for the their
examination of ETRs.
I expressed about this in the message as the following.
"Probably, they may have a valid reason for doing so, and I may agree with
the reason 100% by the cases."
I think, the same situation is well expressed by Mr. Arnold, James L. Jr.

My concern, I still raise this, is that CEM requirements and the guidance on
ETR are very good, but the requirementst seem exceed feasible efforts of
evaluators, when the ST size becomes large.
I would say that evaluators do not select workunits, but describe rationales
for all of them(workunits).
So, I think, for evaluators, to know more clearly the expectaion of
validators on the degree of extent of description would be beneficial for
the cases when the efforts seems overly exceed.
I thought, the new guidance does that.
But, I thought, it could be still refined.
I think, Mr. Arnold, James L. Jr. has well expressed the issue.
I am very sorry for my poor English.
