Data Coordination Board

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.

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.
