Explanation:
For "j. Vorber." I could not find anything anywhere. Could it be a typo in your original text? I have found quite a few hits for "i. Vorber." = "in Vorbereitung" (I guess) = in preparation. It was used to mean that a new document/book/device/requirement/rule/model etc. was being prepared at the time of publication.

Thanks Dan, the "j" could indeed be an "i" as the quality of the faxed original is very poor. I will use your full suggestion "in Vorbereitung". Iain.

Explanation:
I don't know what j. stands for, could be jede-r,s as each or every, and vorber. must be the abreviation of Vorbereitung or vorbereiten for which I,ve given the translation above. I hope it helps.
