Data Coordination Board

Summary

The Data Coordination Board (DCB) meets on a monthly basis to review and approve the assurance of information standards and data collections (including extractions), known collectively as ISCE.

Data Coordination Board activity

ISCE (both new and changes) are presented to DCB at:

  • Initial stage: an initial stage assessment report provides an overview of a proposal for a new, or change to an existing, ISCE and requests DCB approval to proceed with assurance of the ISCE
  • Final stage: a final stage assessment report summarises the assurance and appraisal activity that has been carried out against the ISCE and requests DCB final approval.

Following DCB approval of an item at 'Final' stage, publication documents for the ISCE will be issued. You can view recent publication activity on our publication pages.
