Device Protocol Approved by IEC Committee

The SIA Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) standard — developed by the Security Industry Association (SIA)— has been approved by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) technical committee on alarm and electronic security systems as an international standard. The latest version of SIA OSDP will be listed as IEC 60839-11-5 and be available in the IEC Webstore.

SIA OSDP is an access control communications standard developed by SIA to improve interoperability among access control and security products. Maintained and developed by the SIA OSDP Working Group since 2011, the standard was submitted to the IEC as a candidate standard in 2016.

SIA is happy to assist should you need any additional information or be interested in customized quotes and/or interviews with SIA OSDP Working Group members or others for your coverage.
