The ICT Standardisation Steering Committee which had been set up by the European Commission to advise on the ICT standardisation policy reform recently issued a detailed and interesting document on the importance of ICT specifications from fora/consortia for effective policy making in Europe. The ICT Steering Committee consists of a large number of relevant stakeholders in European ICT standardisation including Member States, ESOs, SMEs, consumers and industry. The paper was agreed to be available for public distribution.
The paper is a valuable contribution to the ongoing debate on the EU legal package on standardisation and the draft Regulation. It is definitely worth a read – and the good news: it contains an executive summary – for those who have got too many documents to read and enjoy getting things in a nutshell ;-)
