Standards Data Maintenance

Consensus Group

To meet ANSI requirements for certification of NCPDP standards, a new Voting Consensus Group is formed annually for new data maintenance packets resulting from the Joint Technical Work Group Meetings held in that year. To participate one must enroll each year. The enrollment period occurs in the January-February timeframe. Participation in the Voting Consensus Group is voluntary but must consist of at least 30 participants and represent a reasonable balance of stakeholder interests.

Public comments are solicited on proposed new standards and proposals to revise, reaffirm or withdraw approval of existing standards simultaneously with the NCPDP ballot period.
