This document reports on feedback received on a draft of the development of HISO 10094:2022 Māori Descent and Iwi Affiliation Data Protocols that was placed out for public comment late in 2021. 

An evaluation panel, comprising representatives from the Ministry of Health, Stats NZ, Data Iwi Leaders Group, Interim Māori Health Authority and Interim Health New Zealand reviewed all comments received. The panel observed that the new standard had a good overall level of support and there were no comments expressing opposition to the protocols. Many comments offered constructive improvements to the draft, which were incorporated into the document for publication.

The document also identifies questions that were beyond the scope of the protocols but related directly to implementation. These will inform future developments to the protocols.
