A new website has been launched to bring together vendors, standards organizations and users of message standards. MessageStandards allows users to find out about the organizations and vendors that support these standards. Over time, MessageStandards intends to expand to include a Request for Proposal center and other services related to the message standards industry. At the moment, MessageStandards includes a listing of message standards bodies and organizations that support message standards and message content (reference data). These message standards bodies are listed by industry or by group if they are not industry specific. There are over 250 standards organizations along with their charter listed on the site. In addition, there is a Vendor Directory with 600 vendors already listed.
