The Open Standards Board approved a recommendation to adopt HTTP v1.1 and URL as open standards in relation to the persistent resolvable identifiers challenge. This will be to use resolvable URIs to identify things and codes within data published by government. While in principle these identifiers can take a wide variety of forms, there is an advantage to both the producers and users of the data if these URIs can follow a standard predictable structure.  

The challenge now is to recommend a set of patterns for URIs that balances predictability with the flexibility needed to serve a wide range of needs.
