Common Channel Naming Working Group
NCC/NPSTC Standard Channel Nomenclature for the Public Safety Interoperability Channels
In early 2015, the NPSTC Governing Board asked the Common Channel Naming Task Group to reconvene as the Common Channel Working Group to update the Standard Channel Nomenclature for the Public Safety Interoperability Channels ANSI Standard. The resulting updated document has gone through the review and comment period and is now awaiting approval as an updated ANSI standard.

NPSTC Intrastate Channel Naming Recommendations Document
The NPSTC Intrastate Channel Naming Recommendations is a companion document to the ANSI Standard. The purpose of these Recommendations is to provide a common system for naming the interoperability channels used regionally and statewide by local, regional, tribal, state, and federal agencies throughout the State of [State]. The scope of these Recommendations includes first responders and other authorized users. It applies to all voice communications channels designated by [State] agencies for interoperability purposes. It does not apply to local/state interoperability channels designated nationally by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) or to federal agency channels designated nationally by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). The document was approved by the NPSTC Governing Board on June 13, 2016.
