Standards for Enhanced and Next Generation 911

Standards development for Next Generation 911 (NG911) plays a vital role in helping 911 industry stakeholders make informed decisions for a cost-effective and efficient transition to a NG911 system that enables seamless interoperation nationwide.

With a number of standards development organizations (SDOs) addressing NG911 issues, understanding and tracking new standards can be a daunting task. Since 2011, the National 911 Program has assisted the community’s important standards development effort by compiling and sharing all of the current standards information in one complete report.

Each of the SDOs was provided the opportunity to review their respective content for accuracy. In order to provide the most current picture of the status of NG911 standards, the Program continues to update this report annually.
