Standards and collections

An alphabetical list of all current Data Coordination Board (DCB) and Information Standards Board (ISB) standards and collections. 

The list is updated on a monthly basis, following the approval of new items, and changes, by the data coordination board.

Recent publication activity can also be found on our Publication and notification pages.

Withdrawn, deprecated and retired items, which are no longer approved for use, can be viewed on our withdrawn standards page

Data Set Change Notices (DSCNs) and Information Standards Notices (ISNs) published between 1991 and 31 March 2014 are available to view in an Excel document. Note that where the ISN is still current, it will also be listed in the current standards list below.

If you can't find the material you need, or would like to join our mailing list to be notified of new information standards, please contact the Data Standards Assurance Service at standards.assurance@nhs.net
