The Open Standards Board approved a recommendation 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.  

The draft Standards Profile recommends an approach to structuring URIs through a set of patterns that balance predictability with the flexibility needed to serve a wide range of needs.  The draft Profile aims to create an approach that provides resolvability into data without reliance on any particular technology while allowing for the data publisher to automate the expression of their data through URIs.

Previous advice on this topic (Designing URI Sets for the UK Public Sector https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/designing-uri-sets-for-the-uk-public-sector) has proved useful but overly constraining. Work sponsored by the UKGovLD working group has built on the prior advice and suggests a more flexible set of patterns which includes the notion of collections. The UKGovLD paper should be an input to this challenge.
