This test includes details on the following formats: DVD-R/-RW/-RAM, +R/+RW. It may be applied to additional optical disk formats with the appropriate specification substitutions and may be updated by committee in the future as required. A second edition of ECMA-379 (fully aligned with ISO/IEC 10995:2008) was adopted at the December 2008 General Assembly.
