Open Standards Initiative


The Open Standards Initiative (OSI) was launched by the FGDP(UK) on 8th May 2015. More information about the launch of the OSI is available here.

Over time, all of the FGDP(UK)'s standards and guidance publications will be made available to view online without charge. At present three of our standards guidance documents are available. Log in (details below) and the click on the icons below to view for free.





Accessing the standards and guidelines

To access these documents you will need to log in to the website.

FGDP(UK) members should use their existing log in credentials. Non members should log in with the following:

Please note that these details are case-sensitive.

In the future we will introduce a registration process for non members which will enable us to keep you updated with ammendments to the standards and guidelines.


Version Control

When we make changes to our standards and guidelines these are logged on a version control page for that publication. This will enable to you to identify what the guidance said at any particular point in time.
