A Candidate Standard has received significant review within a Specialist Group. Advancement of a document to Candidate Standard is an explicit call to those outside of the related Specialist Group for implementation and technical feedback. This is the phase at which the Specialist Group is responsible for formally acquiring that experience or at least defining the expectations of implementation.
Documents are provided in the links below in the Acrobat (PDF) format. Schema files are provided in the ZIP format.
