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standards in the standards library on this website remain current and will continue to be updated, to mark items as superseded, on approval of changes by SCCI.

Data Set Change Notices

This section is an archive of Data Set Change Notices (DSCNs).

DSCNs were replaced by Information Standards Notices (ISNs) from April 2010. Please see the online catalogue in the Library for further information. The Library should be used for details of standards.

As part of the organisational transition, ISB undertook a review of the standards issued since April 1997 and published either as DSCNs or ISNs.  It is proposed that the standards identified as no longer being in use are withdrawn in readiness to hand over to the new structure and process in 2014.  For further details, please see the Information Standards Notice issued in April 2014.

For information on the changes, please see using standards.
