> Generally the process leading to an American National Standard (ANS) begins with a statement of need submitted by the accredited standards developer (PINS). At this stage, major concerns, such as if the marketplace will support the development of such a standard, are raised by the participants in the process. In addition to new standards projects, the PINS is used to notify the public when there are plans to revise an existing standard.  
> 
> If a project is approved, the next phase usually consists of developing a draft text.  Subject matter experts (SMEs) are brought together and are given the assignment to write the standard.  When the SMEs agree on the content of the draft, it is sent out for a broader review to other interested parties who may be affected or influenced by the proposed standard. The standards developer and ANSI work to ensure the broadest possible review. Consideration is given to the expressed views and objections of all participants by listing it for public review in Standards Action and by consensus ballot. Any comments received during the public review or during the consensus ballot are considered. Ballot comments are reviewed and responded to accordingly. Agreed changes are incorporated into a new draft and, if necessary due to substantive changes in the text, a further public review may be initiated.

> BSR/IEEE 1711-201x, Standard for a Cryptographic Protocol for Cyber Security of Substation Serial Links
> This standard defines a cryptographic protocol to provide integrity, and optional confidentiality, for cyber security of substation serial links. It does not address specific applications or hardware implementations, and is independent of the underlying communications protocol.

> BSR/IEEE 2030.102.1-201x, Standard for Interoperability of Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) Utilized within Utility Control Systems
> This standard provides guidelines for interoperability of devices utilized within utility control systems which support critical cyber security functions. Interoperable Configuration Profiles (ICPs) to describe a specific instantiation of a particular security related protocol are described. This description of the ICPs will make it easier for utilities to procure and implement secure systems, provide adequate cyber security controls no matter the vendor selected, provide backward compatibility, and minimize the effort of configuring and maintaining devices supporting cyber security functions over their lifetime.
