With PAR approval, a Working Group is defined and it can officially begin its work to develop or write the standard. In short, Working Groups work to create and write the standard. Working Groups are open to anyone to participate. For individual standards projects, IEEE or IEEE-SA membership is not required to participate. For corporate standards projects, IEEE-SA corporate membership is required. Overall, Working Groups strive for broad representation of all interested parties and encourage global participation.

In the spirit of openness, agendas for Working Group meetings are distributed beforehand and the results of the group’s deliberations are publicly available, usually through meeting minutes. Working Groups have a chairperson who facilitates the group discussions and offers leadership and guidance to the Working Group. He/she also serves as the contact person for technical questions about the standard.
