UNITED NATIONS GROUP OF EXPERTS ON GEOGRAPHICAL NAMES (UNGEGN)
Recognizing the need to ensure maximum stability of romanization systems,
Noting that guidelines governing the consideration of romanization systems are desirable,
Further noting the principle that international standardization should be based on national standardization,
1. Recommends that new romanization systems for international use should be considered only on condition that the sponsoring nations implement such systems on their cartographic products (maps and charts);
2. Further recommends that States should refrain from revising systems previously adopted for international use.
