EE Times writes JEDEC is working on the first SSD standards update since September 2010. One of the areas the new standard will focus on is the retention of date on SSDs with meaningful, real-life endurance and reliability metrics:
In a news release, JEDEC said the latest update to JESD218 has been underway for some time and will primarily address improvements in test methodologies to better reflect product expectations, reduce testing options to remove unused methods, and add clarifications to improve the readability and understanding of test methods and artifacts caused by accelerated testing.

JEDEC noted in the release that the standard has been receiving a great deal of attention of late following some misconceptions about retention of data on SSDs, which underscores the need to define “meaningful, real-life endurance and reliability metrics” for SSDs.
