Standards First Pledge Governance
IMS desires all signers of the Standards First Pledge take their rights and responsibilities under the pledge seriously. IMS has established a method to accept reports of purported non-compliance applicable to IMS standards, as follows:.
- Issues can be submitted via web form by organizations that have signed the pledge indicating the specific details of non-adherence by another pledge signer related to IMS works.
- IMS will review the issue in a timely manner including collecting additional information with the goal of proposing steps to an amicable resolution.
- If a resolution between the parties cannot be reached, IMS reserves the right to revoke an organization’s pledge commitment.
