It may loop in that stage for a few iterations. If you get a clean round you can go for a vote. It only requires 10 yes-votes if there are no no-votes. (the members count is in the mid hundreds).
National standards organisations of small countries usually go out of their way to help with anything that remotely has a national impact for them, so you don't need a lot of funding to push a standard, just a lot of time, energy and friends.
