Contributing to standards development

Registered Standards Users, and anyone invited to join the API Technical Group, can read and comment on all versions of API standards that are under development.

Registered Community Contributors can read and comment on ‘release candidate’ standards.

Current development pipeline plan

The future development pipeline plan is currently being considered following the release of our v2.0 standards. The pipeline plan is subject to market input and API Council consideration.  

Contributing to the pipeline plan

Registered Standards Users can contribute to the pipeline plan and the development process. They can also log into Confluence to view and comment on the plan, raise development issues, opportunities, and propose fixes. The API Business and Technical Groups then work together to deliver on the agreed plan of new standards and enhancements. To find out more about the role and responsibilities of the groups, see the About section.

API Community Contributors will also be consulted on the proposed annual pipeline plan.
