Open standards for government

Information about the open standards chosen for use in government technology.

Detail

The UK government is selecting a set of open standards for use in government technology. The aim is to apply these consistently across government bodies, making our services better for users.

The profiles listed here include the open standards that have been chosen after a period of peer review and public comment through the Standards Hub.

The Open Standards Board endorsed the first set of open standards for government technology in September 2013.
