New use cases to extend the interoperability standard ISO/IEEE11073 (X73) were found during the development of recent specializations. These use cases expose the need of remote command & control extensions to allow managers to configure agents through the standard. This paper presents a proposal for an extension of remote control and configuration service able to standardize a general procedure within newest branch of this standard called X73 for Personal Health Devices (X73PHD. In order to develop a service for remote control, several approaches have been studied and discussed in the Personal Health Device Working Group (PHD-WG). The final solution is defined following the PHD-WG guidelines and integrated with the Optimized Exchange Protocol (X73-20601) and device specializations (X73-104xx). Previous works such as the classic command and control and the extended services packages from X73-10201 and X73-20301, respectively, have also been taken into account.
