ISO/IEC Directives Part 1 (6th ed., 2015)
Section 2.13:

In ISO and IEC, there is an understanding that original material
contributed to become a part of an ISO,
IEC or ISO/IEC publication can be copied and distributed within the
ISO and/or IEC systems (as relevant)
as part of the consensus building process, this being without
prejudice to the rights of the original
copyright owner to exploit the original text elsewhere. Where material
is already subject to copyright,
the right should be granted to ISO and/or IEC to reproduce and
circulate the material. This is frequently
done without recourse to a written agreement, or at most to a simple
written statement of acceptance.
Where contributors wish a formal signed agreement concerning copyright
of any submissions they
make to ISO and/or IEC, such requests must be addressed to ISO Central
Secretariat or the IEC Central
Office, respectively.
