A candidate for becoming a standard

Typically, the process of developing a standard starts with user needs and/or input from a research community active in a related area. Prometeus is an example of this.

This then leads to specification work, defining how interoperability can be achieved in the field under consideration. IMS is an example of a body developing interoperability specifications.

Next, these specifications are tested for their validity by user organisations. AICC is one such body, but so are JCIEL projects and CETIS Groups.

Finally, if a specification is deemed to be valid and widely accepted, it is submitted to a formal standards body like IEEE, a volunteer organisation, or ISO, a government sponsored standards body
