Global Standards Collaboration (GSC)

ATIS is a founding member of the Global Standards Collaboration (GSC).

The GSC mission:
GSC is an unincorporated voluntary organization dedicated to enhancing global cooperation and collaboration regarding communications standards and the related standards development environment by facilitating:

  • Exchange of information.
  • Identification of common views on priority topics, particularly with respect to emerging communications technologies.
  • Collaboration in planning synergistic standards development activities that may reduce unnecessary duplication and increase efficiency with a view to developing international standards fulfilling the World Trade Organization Uruguay Round Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade Annex 3 Code of Good Practice for the Preparation, Adoption and Application of Standards.

Per the GSC-9/15 resolution, the ITU agreed to be the central respository for past GSC meeting documents — access GSC documents via View a brief history about GSC.
