Standards Association Standards Board
The IEEE-SA Standards Board (SASB) encourages and coordinates the development and revision of IEEE standards. This includes approving the initiation of IEEE standards projects and to reviewing them for consensus, due process, openness, and balance.
Members of the IEEE Standards Board are appointed by the IEEE-SA Board of Governors. The Board consists of no fewer than 18 or more than 26 voting members. They must be IEEE and IEEE-SA members. In addition, an IEEE Technical Activities Board Liaison serves as a voting member. Non-voting members include one Member Emeritus, liaison representatives from IEEE Societies and their technical committees.
Board Meeting Minutes, Meeting Schedules, and other Information on IEEE SA Standards Board (and the Board Committees) is available at: http://standards.ieee.org/about/sasb/meetings.html
The IEEE-SA Standards Development OnLine, SDOL, provides a step-by-step description of the IEEE standards development process, including forms and tools. Standards projects are started in the IEEE-SA with the approval of a PAR (Project Authorization Request). PARs define the sponsor, scope, purpose, and contact points for the document project. In the IEEE-SA list of active PARs all those with a sponsor code starting with PE/ are PES Technical Committees document projects.
