Overview: The Global Standards Collaboration (GSC) started out in 1990 as the 'Inter-regional Telecommunications Standards conference (ITSC),' an initiative of the T1 Committee of the United States which invited the other founding partner organizations - ITU-T, ETSI (Europe) and TTC (Japan) - to the first meeting in Fredericksburg. The ITSC, as a conference, became too big and was therefore reduced to GSC, the Global Standards Collaboration, with delegations of reasonable size (10 maximum). Its scope remained the same. The goal of the Global Standards Collaboration (GSC) is to enhance co-operation between Participating Standards Organizations (PSOs) from different regions of the world in order to facilitate exchange of information on standards development, build synergies and reduce duplication.
