Developed through the cooperation of all parties who have an interest in participating in the development and/or use of the standards. Consensus requires that all views and objections be considered, including feasability, and that an effort be made toward their resolution. Consensus implies more than the concept of a simple majority, but not necessarily unanimity. Consensus standards should be viewed as minimum acceptable standards, not an ideal or maximum target objective.
