Implementation

Asgardian Standards are:

An Asgardian Standard is either a Recommendatory Asgardian Standard or a Mandatory Asgardian Standard. Asgardian Standards created or modified in the context of the Pre-AIS are called “Asgardian Transitional Standards” (instead of “Asgardian Standards”). Asgardian Transitional Standards are not yet compulsory, since the AIS has not yet been formally established and supported by a law, but it is recommended to treat them as regular Asgardian Standards.

For Asgardian Standards the following applies:

 
Entities within Asgardia and interactions with Asgardia:

  • should comply to the Mandatory Asgardian Standards, and they should specify how,
  • and should:
    • either comply to Recommendatory Asgardian Standards, and they should specify how,
    • or explain why they do not, and they should explain why not, and to what alternative standards they do comply to.

Asgardia (Transitional) Standards may be written specifically for Asgardia, but they can also refer to existing terrestrial standards. In the latter case, reference to international and widely accepted standards is preferred.

The Pre-AIS is led by a Management Team which does the daily operations of the AIS, makes decisions when appropriate and maintains all Pre-AIS documentation, including the Asgardian Standards.

The procedures on creating and modifying Asgardian Standards and on modifying the Pre-AIS itself, including its procedures, are specified in the menu “Procedures”. The Pre-AIS does the administration of the Asgardian Standards and maintains its own work program and documentation set. The procedure for modifying the Pre-AIS itself is very similar to that of modifying an Asgardian Standard.

Auditing of an entity (like a component, product, services or organization) against an Asgardian Standard is done by an independent organization, ACQia, the Institute of Asgardia for the Assurance of Compliance and Quality. They will check the compliancy to Mandatory and Recommendatory Asgardian Standards and analyse and (when appropriate) check alternative compliancy, and after that they will formally either accept or reject the compliancy.

The finances of the Pre-AIS are managed by the Treasurer. The Pre-AIS and Pre-ACQia are financed in two ways:

The Pre-AIS is a purely online organization, it does not have a physical office.
