(Note this work and effort has moved to the ANCR WG - Wiki



Three Decentralised  Governance Sectors 

  1. Notice and Consent - (Standards) - with a final push, motivated by this collaborative Summer Project, presented with the DLC reference implementation


In line with all the activity in this space this summer, the Notice & Consent Project is supporting a multi-commuity input summer project, led the by the  Lifecycle of Consent RFC for  Distributed Ledger Consent (DLC), presented to the CISWG as work being undertaken at Hyperledger.   The contribution, is the resulting DLC extension for the Notice and Notification Consent State Record specification, which we are working on in the Notice and Consent Group. 

This project provides related efforts opportunities to mash up some decentralised standards work, using the global notice and consent standards, which have long been in development.  

Kick Off Agenda

  1. Updates
  2. Discussion and some planning
  3. Jan - Starting with a demo of the privacy agreement and flow for Digital Consent Technology 
    1. more specific tasks details and assignment
  4. Summer Dates and Planning 

Summer Project 2020 Description

Touchstone use case - with support from UBC - Dr. Lemieux, who has provide some of @Anadi's time, from the Molecular You project, that is working on block-chain technology for GA4GH and medical research initiatives in tele-health.  Along with Jim, who has already worked o this project and its consent en-codification, Jan, who has specified the lifecycle requirements for DLC, with Hyperledger, Scott with the Informational Risks, which are required for the Privacy Agreement notices and the Common Accord Contract so that a DLC is suitable for genetic medical research consent in GA4GH. 

All the conditions - for the perfect summer project


Note: As a result, the rest of the summer calls will be focused on Summer Project Activities with a break in calls on Aug 15th, for a break, and some fun.   (and to give people to finish and submit work etc independently)  But all projects that submit- must be under the project IPR and available for use in the DLC use case. 


  1. Work on the Hyperledger Digital Ledger Consent Lifecycle reference implementation, utilising the inputs and interest from the ISI _ Notice & Consent Project Calls. 
    1. Privacy Agreement 
      1. Privacy by Design and Consent by Design Standard Protocol Requirements for DLC - Listed for GA4GH Code of Practice  
      2. All of the GA4GH categories mapped into DPV
      3. All restrictions and derogation listed for discussion on hack day 
        1. July 20 - Update the reference implementation - plan - a hack day for inputs and outputs. 
      4. Common Accord Version of Privacy Agreement- utilising 29184 and inputs
        1. Information Risks of Harm (WU) inputs - as required DLC Notice - for Consent Directive Smart Privacy Contract 
  2. July 20 - Genetic Consent Hack-Day for a Unified Data Control Vocabulary 
    1. review of inputs and discussion about the genetic consent requirements for use with DPV and GA4GH in the reference implementation
    2. gap analysis. and report writing
      1. each participant takes a section on summarises - in 3 pages or less
      2. due Aug 10th 

The Plan 

  1. Kick-Off - Wed 10th of June
    1. Tasks:ask for all the inputs for the DLC project to be provided by July 10th
      1. invite for Support for Mapping the GA4GH with the DPV from the W3C  -  for the hardest use case in consent - medical consent for genetic research and the human genome. 
        1. categories and
