Leading Global Standards Organizations Endorse 'OpenStand' Principles

IEEE, IAB, IETF, Internet Society & W3C Invite Other Standards Organizations, Governments and Companies to Support Modern Paradigm for Global, Open StandardsFive leading group of global organizations — IEEE, Internet Architecture Board (IAB), Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), Internet Society and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) — today announced that they have signed a statement affirming the importance of a jointly developed set of principles establishing a modern paradigm for global, open standards. The group have invited other standards organizations, governments, corporations and technology innovators globally to endorse the principles.

The principles comprise a modern paradigm in which the economics of global markets — fueled by technological innovation — drive global deployment of standards, regardless of their formal status within traditional bodies of national representation. The OpenStand principles demand:

  • cooperation among standards organizations;
  • adherence to due process, broad consensus, transparency, balance and openness in standards development;
  • commitment to technical merit, interoperability, competition, innovation and benefit to humanity;
  • availability of standards to all, and
  • voluntary adoption.

Leslie Daigle, chief Internet technology officer with the Internet Society says: "International standards development for borderless economics is not ad hoc; rather, it has a paradigm — one that has demonstrated agility and is driven by technical merit. The OpenStand principles convey the power of bottom-up collaboration in harnessing global creativity and expertise to the standards of any technology space that will underpin the modern economy moving forward."
