The IHE International Governance is the basis for IHE committee procedures. The following pages supplement the Governance and address operational details.
Technical Framework Development
IHE Domains use one of two development patterns:
- Annual Cycle
- Continuous Development Cycle
Both patterns have the same/similar process steps:
- Standards Selection Process
- Technical Framework Publication Process
- Public Comment Process
- Change Proposal Process
- National Extensions Process
- Final Text Process
- Retirement Process
