​The objective of the CCSDS Management Council (CMC) is to provide the executive management oversight of the organization. The CMC is responsible for staying technically and politically informed about important long-term issues in the field of international space mission cross support and for keeping an eye on the “big picture” of the CCSDS program of work. The CMC provides oversight for the whole CCSDS technical organization and of support organizations like the Secretariat and the SANA. The technical work of the SANA is specifically guided by the SANA Steering Group (SSG).​


​Enhance the existing SANA to act not only as a centralized reference point and distributed federated elements owned by participating agencies, but also to foster the measurability of CCSDS standards utilization. The evolution of the SANA is guided by the SSG.​
