In Community Review

The RDA community is invited to comment on a variety of documents while they undergo a community review phase as part of their endorsement or recognition by RDA. These documents include:

  • - Working Group (WG) Case Statements and RDA Interest Group (IG) Charters that outline the scope and outputs of a group
  • - Recommendations, the main outputs produced by WGs
  • - Supporting Outputs, produced by WGs or IGs
  • - Some documents produced by RDA task forces or other RDA initiatives


Usually, those documents stay open for community review for a month. They are listed in the "RfC box" on the home page.

Below you can find a list of the Groups with Case Statements or Charters currently under community review.
