THE VALUE

OF STANDARDS

Data standards are traditionally set through three main methods:


1. through product or service or vendor domination in a specific market,

sector or network


2.  by mandate through a governmental or

authoritative body, agency, statute, regulation or law


3.  through a voluntary, consensus-based

approach with an open, transparent

and collaborative process


A voluntary consensus-based approach to data standards is the most successful method.  A groundbreaking report from the Delphi Group in 2003, from which PESC based most of its strategy and operations, highlights the value of standards and key factors on community views and perceptions of standards bodies.
