Supporting information for DWP consultation
PDP information on standards
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)’s consultation, Pensions Dashboards: consultation on the draft Pensions Dashboards Regulations 2022, set out the key duties for occupational pension schemes to participate in pensions dashboards.
To support stakeholders wishing to respond to this consultation, the Pensions Dashboards Programme (PDP) published information about our standards for pensions dashboards, including their scope and how we’ll go about setting them. PDP will consult on these standards in summer 2022.

Approach to standards
Our approach to standards sets out how PDP worked on the information about standards, plus their scope and how we’ll go about setting them.
Data usage guide
The data usage guide provides clear guidelines on data items, which allow ecosystem participants to understand the format and meaning of each data item they share and exchange. It includes relevant data items for both find and view processes.
The design standards will provide information to dashboard providers about required layouts, content elements, messaging and user journeys, to ensure a consistently positive experience, regardless of which dashboard an individual chooses.
The reporting standards will provide a clear description of the data that both data and dashboard providers must supply to regulatory bodies, in order to monitor the effectiveness and health of the ecosystem. This will include data to provide analytics, benchmarking, oversight and monitoring, and critical success factor reports.
The technical standards are what data and dashboard providers will use to interface with the central technical architecture and/or each other. They will define the open APIs for find and view, PDP’s profile of the user managed access (UMA) protocol and the format of the pension identifier (PeI).
Code of connection
The code of connection will combine the required security, service and operational standards, which ecosystem participants must adhere to. It will ensure all data and dashboard providers apply appropriate levels of security, consistent operational processes and service levels.
Qualitative research with potential dashboard users summary research report
The Pensions Dashboards Programme (PDP) commissioned Ipsos MORI to carry out a programme of qualitative research, to investigate the attitudes of potential dashboard users, their circumstances, behaviours and their views of the pensions dashboards concept.
