The Data Standards Authority was established in April 2020 as a multi-disciplinary team drawn from a variety of data-related backgrounds in technology, strategy and policy. Working with experts across the wider public sector and devolved administrations, the private sector and academia, the DSA identifies, improves and helps implement data standards that meet user needs.

The DSA leads the cross-government conversation around data standards, engaging regularly with the wider data community to address challenges together.
