The Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care (ISB) closed on 31 March 2014.

Responsibility for the recommendation for approval of information standards has transferred to the Standardisation Committee for Care Information (SCCI). For further details visit the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) website.

The approved information standards in the standards library on this website remain current and will continue to be updated, to mark items as superseded, on approval of changes by SCCI.

Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care

Changes to the role of ISB

New national governance arrangements for information standards, data collections and data extractions came into effect on 1 April 2014.

From this date the Standardisation Committee for Care Information (SCCI), a subgroup of the National Information Board (initially known as the Informatics Services Commissioning Group), formed and accepted responsibilities from the ISB.

However note that publication of information standards remains on the ISB website until the end of December 2014, after which it will transfer to the HSCIC website.

In due course this ISB site will transfer into the custody of The National Archives.

Note that:

ISB thanks all who have contributed to the successful development, implementation and use of information standards. The list is too long to name all individuals who have been involved. We hope you will continue to support our successor, SCCI.
