Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care

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

Responsibility for the governance of information standards has transferred to the Standardisation Committee for Care Information (SCCI).

The following definition will remain in the NHS Data Model and Dictionary as references for standards assured and approved by the Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care up 31 March 2014 are correct.

The Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care (ISB) in England was tasked with the independent assurance and approval of information standards for adoption by the NHS and social care up to 31 March 2014.

The scope of the Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care included all information standards within the Department of Health, NHS, adult social care and those required to support approved sharing and communication with other agencies where NHS information infrastructure and systems are to be used.

The standards library on the Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care website at http://www.isb.nhs.uk will continue to be updated, to mark items as superseded, on approval of changes by the Standardisation Committee for Care Information (SCCI).
