Introducing the SSRB
The Spreadsheet Standards Review Board (‘SSRB’) was established in 2003 to provide a medium through which a generally-applicable, comprehensive set of Best Practice Spreadsheet Modeling Standards (‘Standards’) could be publicly maintained.
Since the first set of Standards were released, the SSRB has overseen seven major upgrades, with the current version of the Standards being Version 7.2.
The SSRB is responsible for:
The SSRB meets periodically to evaluate and consider proposals to add, delete or modify the Standards that are submitted to the SSRB by any party.
The SSRB is a voluntary, non-commercial body which invites participation from anyone in the spreadsheet modeling community. Please contact the SSRB if you would like to get involved, or complete a submission to request the addition, modification or removal of a Standard or Convention.
Software, Training & Assessment
Updates and amendments to the Standards are announced via the Modano Newsletter, which is also used to provide spreadsheet modellers with best practice commentary and examples, as well as information about tools which can be used to assist in the implementation of the Standards.
