As noted in section 10 of the REFEDS Participation Agreement, REFEDS Working Groups produce prospective REFEDS specifications, standards, best practices, and related documents and provide them to the REFEDS community for review. This is called a Consultation, which typically spans a four to six week period. Feedback gathered through Consultation is considered by the referring Working Group to take into account either to produce a final draft form of the document that then is submitted to the REFEDS Steering Committee for final adoption, or to "go back to the drawing board" and consider whether a substantially different proposal should go forward.  The purpose of consultations is to ensure that broad consensus is achieved within the community.  Consistent consultation and consensus gathering means that adoption is significantly more likely.
