The International Subcommission on Stratigraphic Classification, as the constituent body of the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS) responsible for the International Stratigraphic Guide, has voted to include the subseries/ subepoch as a formal rank in the next edition of the Guide. This acknowledges the recent ratification of formal subseries and their corresponding stages for the Holocene Series/Epoch but allows individual subcommissions within ICS the freedom to decide whether or not to adopt this rank for their particular stratigraphic/time interval.
