From time to time, REFEDS will publish standards and specifications to support its community. The following lists all the approved specifications by REFEDS at this point in time.  Federation Operators, Entities, and eInfrastructures may also be interested in the specifications supported by AEGIS and the AARC project.

If you believe that an entity or federation is inappropriately or incorrectly using a REFEDS specification, we encourage you to first raise this with the organisation in question.  If the behaviour persists, you can raise an issue for adjudication by the REFEDS Steering Committee via this contact.
