The OpenActive Activity List is a standardised list for use as reference data in apps, systems and tools like activity finders. The OpenActive Activity List covers widely practised physical activities. It provides standardised labels and identifiers to improve accuracy and discovery. It is collaboratively maintained by the OpenActive community and aims as far as possible to be reliable, comprehensive, and complete.

The approval of  exceptions will be guided by the criteria above and expertise of the group as owners of the list. and the role of the OpenActive W3C Community Group will be more ownership focussed.
