Working Group/Project Scope: This standard defines a media independent framework within IEEE 802 to provide consistent access and data that facilitate compliance to applicable civil authority requirements for communications systems that include IEEE 802 networks. This includes a data link layer interface for a consistent view of IEEE 802 networks by IP (Internet Protocol) based citizen-to-authority emergency services capabilities from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Emergency Context Resolution with Internet Technologies (ECRIT). This standard specifies a layer 2 entity and associated behaviors with a uniform structure of management information for transferring data required by an emergency services request.

The Emergency Services Working Group was created by IEEE 802 EC and IEEE-SASB action in March of 2010
