Definition/
Use
The principles of Open Standards:
  • 1. Openness
    All stakeholders may participate in the standards development process.

  • 2. Consensus
    All interests are discussed and agreement found, no domination.

  • 3. Due Process
    Balloting and an appeals process may be used to find solution.

  • 4. Open IPR
    Holders of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) must identify themselves during the standards development process.

  • 5. Open World
    Same standard for the same function, world-wide.

  • 6. Open Access
    All may access committee documents, drafts and completed standards.

  • 7. Open Meeting
    All may participate in standards development meetings.

  • 8. On-going Support
    Standards are supported until user interest ceases rather than when provider interest declines.

  • 9. Open Interfaces
    Interfaces allow additional functions, public or proprietary.

  • 10. Open Use
    Low or no charge for IPR necessary to implement an accredited standard.
