The Automated Vehicle Safety Consortium (AVSC), an industry program of SAE Industry Technologies Consortia (SAE ITC), released a new best practice in April 2020 developed for automated driving systems (ADS) developers and manufacturers responsible for defining their ADS Operational Design Domain (ODD).

The Best Practice for Describing an Operational Design Domain: Conceptual Framework and Lexicon document establishes common terms and a framework in which to apply them. Where applicable, labels, definitions and measurement ranges are provided to promote consistent communication and to help ensure that users' ADS expectations are aligned with capabilities.
