EU to prepare standardisation policy on ICT

Views: 330

The European Commission has launched a study to prepare recommendations for the EU's standardisation policy in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector in order to establish objective findings reflecting the market needs.

 

All standardisation stakeholders are invited to respond to the opinion survey, which will be used to help compile the report being prepared by an outside contractor. The analysis is being conducted against the background of major changes in the ICT sector. The combination of liberalisation and globalisation has brought competition within and between sectors, strategic partnerships between companies and a decreasing role for governments. The most striking development is the shift from hardware to software and the impact this has on traditional standardisation policy. The results of the study, and its proposals, will be presented at an open workshop in spring 2007.
