HL7 ANSI Anti-Trust Policy

HL7 adheres to the ANSI Anti-Trust policy.  We should avoid sharing any information on this call that could be interpreted as anti-competitive.  If there are topics that you don’t normally speak about in other public settings, such as conferences or trade shows, then it’s probably best to save those topics for another time as this is a public call. If you have any questions you can refer to the GOM section 05.01 or consult your companies legal division.

2023 May Announcement of Formation of Consensus Group

  • Health Level Seven International® invites you to take part in the formation of consensus groups for balloting HL7 candidate standards and documents prior to the upcoming May 2023 ballot cycle. 
  • Recent changes to ANSI’s Essential Requirements eliminate Affiliates as well as Associations as an interest type for balloting (this does not affect membership type). Beginning with the September 2022 ballot cycle, if your organization falls under the Government/Professional Associations/Universities membership category, it will display as General Interest type for purposes of balloting. With the 2023 May ballot cycle, Affiliate voting members will also fall into this category.

  • Consensus Group Sign-Up Open Date: Monday, February 27, 2023
  • Consensus Group Sign-Up Close Date: Thursday, March 30, 2023

Important Note: Consensus group signup closes when ballot voting begins. 

Consensus group enrollment will be available from a date at least four weeks preceding the ballot vote opening date and will continue until the opening of voting.  While the exact dates are dependent upon individual ballot open and close dates, in general the consensus group signup period dates are as follows:

Reviewed announcements.


Hot of the presses.  We have a few more weeks to submit comments to HHS on the Attachments proposed rule.
