Information Standards

Suppliers wishing to provide systems and services to the NHS in England need to adhere to the nationally published standards. These standards are managed via the Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care (ISB). Suppliers should visit http://www.isb.nhs.uk and register their interest to be kept informed as new standards are published.

Of particular interest to suppliers will be the Standards Enforcement in Procurement (STEP) section of the ISB site, which outlines the standards that suppliers may be required to meet by local procuring organisations.
