Standards: Device Control Protocols

These are the specifications, produced by specific technical working committees, which have been standardized. The standardization process includes obtaining three sample implementations of the Device Control Protocol (DCP) to pass the UPnP Certification Test Tool, circulating the specification for a mandatory Forum member review and comment period, and obtaining the approval of the Steering Committee to become a Standardized DCP. Standardized DCPs are available to the public.
