The PIDX Procedures for Standards Development govern the development, publication, and maintenance of PIDX Standards and the conduct of the PIDX Standards and Guidelines Committee and its Standards Project Teams and Standards Work Groups.
These Procedures have been adopted to promote the following principles:
- Due Process and Transparency. Notice periods and formal voting processes ensure that all interested parties can be informed and adequately prepared to participate in Standards development activities.
- Openness. Standards are made available on a royalty free basis and Standards development activities are open to all interested parties.
- Good Faith. Standards can not be developed to provide an unfair competitive advantage. To ensure this, Participants in development activities are required to disclose interests in intellectual property rights essential to the use of a Standard.
PIDX Standards are developed, revised and interpreted only in accordance with the procedures described in this document.
Each Member or Participant participating in the development of PIDX Standards is required to comply with these PIDX Procedures and to memorialize that agreement by executing a document in the form required by PIDX prior to commencing such activities, as well as periodically thereafter as may be requested by PIDX.
Questions or comments concerning these procedures should be directed in writing to the PIDX
