Our Work Groups and Project Teams
Standards Work Groups and Standards Project Teams carry out the work and activities of PIDX relating to the development of Standards, including the drafting of new proposed Standards, reviewing Standards both during regular review cycles and otherwise and proposing modifications to existing Standards. PIDX’s work related to the development of Standards is carried out by those who volunteer for Standards Work Groups and Standards Project Teams, and is subject to final approval of such work by the Standards and Guidelines Committee, the PIDX Executive Committee and the PIDX Membership.
