- has delegated authority from the National Information Board (NIB) to accept Information Standards and Collections (including Extractions) (ISCEs) for health and social care
- is responsible for the need to change, deprecate and retire existing approved Information Standards and Collections (including Extractions) Notices
- takes its membership from a wide range of national bodies and Organisations involved in the provision and management of health and social care services in England. This ensures a system-wide, joined-up approach to decision-making
