The IEEE specs are republished as ISO specs so that they have
international applicability. The ISO spec will usually have the
corresponding ANSI/IEEE specification number listed. For example,
15802-5-1998 is simply a replublished version of IEEE 802.1G.
I don't what the corresponding IEEE spec is for ISO/IEC 15802-1,
but if you do, and if that has been updated recently by the IEEE,
it would be safe to use the IEEE one as a normative reference.
