It is then a version of the matching standards from Canadian and French standard bodies. This does not make a big difference, except that those national standards (last editions in 2003) are not kept in sync with evolutions of the ISO/IEC standard. So it can be said that this was a version for the 2003 version of the ISO/IEC standard, supported and sponsored by some of their national members.

There is a way to transpose international standards to national standards, but they then pick up a new designation, e.g. ANSI for US or DIN for German or EN for European Norm.

    Time to correct some facts.
    The French version of ISO/IEC 10646 (2003 version) were done in a separate 
effort by Canada and France NBs and not within SC2 proper.
    Then it can be referred to as “French version of ISO/IEC 10646” but I’ve 
got Andrew’s point, too.
    Correction: if a project is not carried out by SC2 (the proper
    ISO/IEC subcommittee) then it is not a "version" of the ISO/IEC
