Overview: CEN, The European Committee for Standardization, and CENELEC, The European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization, have agreed to combine their strategic approach to standards work in the domain of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). With hundreds of industry consortia at global level, technology standards are often fragmented. This environment can be perplexing for stakeholders, and resulting specifications may not always reflect European needs. To increase clarity, and ensure European needs were met, CEN Members established a long-term strategic group – the CEN/ISSS Forum – whose Chair reported to the Technical Board, which sets CEN technical standards strategy.
