Standard-Setting Process

The FMB follows clear procedures when developing, changing, and setting standards. These are important to make the standard setting process as transparent as possible and to allow interested individuals and organizations to provide comments. The FMB’s standard setting process is described in our Standard Setting Guidelines document. These guidelines apply to all of the FMB’s standard setting activities.

Have Your Say

It is the FMB’s goal to develop and publish standards as quickly as possible, while also allowing you to respond and provide your comments — both positive and negative.

Documents open for comment are posted on the FMB's website. To keep up to date on the FMB’s activities, sign up for the FMB Newsletter.

Why Provide Comments?

The FMB works to support First Nations. Your feedback can lead to changes to our standards and help us develop standards that meet the needs of First Nations.
