We support the use of existing electronic standards set through official standards- setting bodies as well as open industry collaboration. We provide guidance to identify these standards. We set new industry standards where there are no national or international bodies to do so. We aggressively work with schools, higher education associations, government agencies, and software and service providers to adopt these standards. We actively encourage the creation and maintenance of an infrastructure for electronic exchange of education-related data. From, 4 February 2003
