Change requests

SFIA is grounded in real-world information systems practice. That practice changes and SFIA changes with it. As a standard used by many people in many places it should and does change slowly, with ample opportunity for users to drive and limit that change. The process starts with user-created 'requirements for change' which can be created, debated and rated here.

Have your say to enhance and influence SFIA. We need you to suggest changes to SFIA. Anyone can register to request a change to SFIA.


The SFIA team and key stakeholders have been through the change requests for the next version of SFIA and have decided that they are:

  • Accepted: change requests which will be turned into proposals for action/wording in the next version of SFIA
  • Declined: change requests which have been rejected. Reasons for rejection are given.
  • Deferred: change requests which have merit but which are not yet fully agreed. Deferred requests will be considered for the next-but-one revision of SFIA.

Pending change requests are awaiting a decision.

We invite your comments on how we plan to meet the accepted change requests in the upgrade to SFIA 7.
