Bridge Standards Working Group


Norming. Members and participants are figuring out structures and working on formats.

Primary Goal

To publish and maintain normative recommendations to benefit bridge players, organisations and businesses, which if adopted by the Bridge industry will become de facto standards.

What are Standards and why are they Important?

“*Standards form the fundamental building blocks for product development by establishing consistent protocols that can be universally understood and adopted. This helps fuel compatibility and interoperability and simplifies product development, and speeds time-to-market.”[1]


Standards subGroups

Areas of interest as potential standards, which are focused on enabling reliable, frictionless data exchange between devices and machines.

Support Groups


Participation is open to representatives of Bridge software providers, NBOs (National Bridge Organisations), RBOs (Regional Bridge Organisations), independent software developers, systems architects and experts in data, formats, protocols and standards.
