How to contribute to Standardization

ETSI has a substantial number of technical groups working on many technical specifications. Knowing where to start can be a little daunting. A good place to start is this overview:

Industry Specification Groups (ISGs)

Industry Specification Groups (ISGs)

ETSI ISGs are open to both ETSI members and non-members.

ISGs are the perfect ETSI tool for developing ‘early’ standardization work resulting from the output of research projects. This tool has been used for many successful standards efforts on such technologies as mWT, NFV, Edge, Artificial Intelligence, AR/VR/XR, Quantum Safe, Quantum Key and many more.

An ISG may be established on the initiative of any group of, at least four (4), Full or Associate members (or applicant members) making a request to the ETSI Director-General. The streamlined ISG process can enable a group to be set up quickly (4 weeks) and deliverables may be published in only a matter of months making it the ideal mechanism for early stage standardization.
