The Forum does not create standards itself but coordinates requirements and resources to foster the creation and evolution of standards within standards organizations working in relevant domains.
The charter of the MSF Standards Register Working Group is to develop the Metaverse Standards Register (MSR) in which information about any Standards-related Publications and Projects (SPPs) relevant to the Metaverse is made publicly available. The Register is currently under development. When it is published, queries of the MSR will return results about pre-qualified organizations and groups (POGs) and any standards-related publications and projects (SPPs) relevant to Metaverse interoperability, including but not limited to, formal and informal standards organizations, standards, standardization projects, specifications, guidelines, or open source projects. More information about the Standards Register Working Group is available on its Web page.
This is an invitation to Metaverse-related standards setting and community organizations to support the collection of standards-related publications and projects in a single public register, hosted and maintained by the Metaverse Standards Forum.
The figure below illustrates steps to follow in order to:
- Apply to become a Standards Register POG
- Submit information about any SPPs your organization publishes.
A1. For any organization to be added to the Standards Register: Add an Organization
A2 and 3. The Standards Register Working Group will carefully review each submission and, if the information is complete and the requirements for an open development process of Metaverse-related deliverables are fulfilled, the organization is approved as a Pre-Qualified Organization or Group (POG).
Once a POG is approved, a new record is created in the Register. Each POG assigns one or multiple designated representatives (in other words, serve as register proposers).
B1. Register proposers are invited to enter information about SPPs via a separate, private form on behalf of the POG.
B2 and 3. The Standards Register Working Group will carefully review each submission and, if the information is complete and the requirements for an SPP are met, the SPP is recorded and will appear in the Metaverse Standards Register.
