The web site provides information on the standards being developed through the American National Standardization Institute (ANSI) process by the IPC and members of NEMI. Each standard starts with the development of a Project Initiation Notification (PINS) document which is required by the ANSI system. The e-commerce chart shows the relationship of the various standards and how they work together to manage business to business (B2B) transactions.

Joint IPC/NEMI Standardization Projects take the proposed "Proof of Concept" developed by NEMI through the ANSI approval procedures. The resulting Standards shown in the e-commerce matrix are available on this Web site. Questions and comments may be sent to Future or continuing standard efforts of committees developing individual standards, are open to all NEMI organizations (the originators of the concept) and IPC organizations.
