Catalog of Standards
The Catalog of Standards was established by the SGIP Governing Board in May 2011, and the first six standards to be included in the catalog were approved by the SGIP Plenary in July 2011. As of May 2013, the number of standards or standards components added to the Catalog of Standards stands at 56. It is anticipated that the catalog will eventually contain hundreds of these consensus documents.
The Catalog of Standards provides a key—but not exclusive—source of input to the NIST process for coordinating the development of a framework of protocols and model standards for an interoperable Smart Grid. (See Section 4.5 of NIST Framework 2.0 for further details on the NIST Smart Grid standards identification process.)

For a layperson's introduction to the Catalog of Standards, this brochure is a good starting point.
