Developing CiA specifications

CiA interest groups (IG) and its related special interest groups (SIG) develop all CiA specifications and CiA recommendations as well as CiA implementation guidelines and CiA application notes. It starts always with a New Work Item Proposal and may end in the release of a public-available document.

The detailed development process is available here.

There is a defined development process adapted from international standardization bodies. Documents in public-available state can be downloaded free-of-charge also by non-members from this website.

CiA Technical Committee

The permanent Technical Committee (TC) members are elected annually by the General Assembly and each Interest Groups (IG) nominates additional members. The TC coordinates the technical work of all CiA technical groups, in order to avoid double specifications. In addition, the TC ratifies all public available CiA technical documents.
