The proof of concept referred above, tested the concept of information regarding emergency incidents being shared between multiple agencies utilising a standard messaging format originally created for use by the Highways Agency. This is already recognised by leading Command & Control (C2) and Computer Aided Despatch (CAD) systems. It is proposed that adapting this standard to meet multiagency information requirements would fulfil this requirement.

As suggested within this response, work has been undertaken to modify the DEIT standard to allow it to meet the additional requirements. A draft schema for this is available for comments at and would welcome any views on this.
