The FISWG forum (link at bottom of page) is a resource for anyone interested in FISWG and its activities. It is our formal interface with the greater community. Generally speaking, anyone with a legitimate interest who seeks access is granted access to the forum.

The semi-annual FISWG meetings are dedicated to the production of our documents, including any standards or guidelines. FISWG endeavors to ensure the process is free from the involvement of individuals with a potential financial interest in those standards - or the perception of financial interest. This is done to ensure the integrity of the process. As a result, while anyone may participate in the process of document preparation by providing feedback to draft documents, vendors and consultants are prohibited from becoming members.
