  1. 1. Reforming the ICT Standardisation Policy in Europe Dr. Jochen Friedrich IBM Technical Relations Executive Chair of the OpenForum Europe Working Group on Standardisation Delegate for DigitalEurope to the ICT Steering Committee jochen@de.ibm.com
  2. 2. ICT standards are widely used Internet eMail Collaboration June 23, 2010 Dr. Jochen Friedrich, IBM 2
  3. 3. Our typical daily dose of global ICT standards* Browsing the web** Standard Organisation Standard Organisation 802.11 IEEE BGP IETF URI IETF HTTP IETF CSS W3C PNG W3C HTML W3C / ISO MPEG ISO/IEC XML W3C ADSL ITU TCP/IP IETF WSDM OASIS Innovative ICT technologies combine different standards from all kinds of organisations *Thanks to Olaf Kolkman, Chair of the IETF Internet Architecture Board, for this slide. **This is far from being a complete list but a small number of examples only for the purpose illustration.

  4. 4. Global ICT Standardisation Ecosystem IEC ISOISO ITU Small “private/ closed” JTC1 ETSI fora and consortia CENELEC CEN CEN OASIS Others... W3C IETF IEEE OGF CEN/ISSS Committees) (National National National Bodies Bodies Covered by the European Outside of the scope of standardisation sytem of today European standardisation – therefore not available for use June 23, 2010 Dr. Jochen Friedrich, IBM 4
  5. 5. The Issue ● A large part of ICT standardisation is done in global open standards development organisations (“fora/consortia”) ● E.g. OASIS, W3C, IETF ... ● These standards are outside of the scope of the current European standardisation framework ● because there are no processes for dealing with standards that were not developed by a formally recognised standards body ● and therefore they are not available for direct use in EU policies and public procurement June 23, 2010 Dr. Jochen Friedrich, IBM 5
  6. 6. The Need for Reform ● Global ICT standards from “fora/consortia” are relevant for innovation, competitiveness and growth ● Take, for instance, the example of the internet but also eHealth, eEnergy, eGovernment, smartGRID, Cloud Computing, etc. ● The EU Digital Agenda as key part of the Europe 2020 strategy will take global leadership on ICT technologies and openness ● ICT standards from “fora/consortia” are required June 23, 2010 Dr. Jochen Friedrich, IBM 6
  7. 7. The Proposed Solution: Revision of Council Decision 87/95/EEC ICT Steering Committee (Multi-Stakeholder Advisory Group) Public Open Com- Consultation Way Revision of Council ICT Confe- mission For- Impact Decision 87/95 Study rence White ward Assessment Paper Apr 2006 Feb 2008 Aug 2009 Autumn/Winter 2009-10 Today Sep 2010 ? ● Focus of Council Decision 87/95 is on the use and implementation of standards in the ICT sector to promote interoperability ● Implement processes for using global open ICT standards in EU policies and public procurement ● Decouple from revision of Directive 98/34 which is on the development of harmonised standards in support of regulation June 23, 2010 Dr. Jochen Friedrich, IBM 7
  8. 8. Moving forward on the ICT reform ● Global open ICT standards are critical for Europe taking leadership in innovation and for competitiveness and growth. ● A full concept for the modernisation of the European ICT standardisation policy was developed with broad stakeholder support and is ready for implementation. ● A revised Council Decision 87/95 will provide the necessary framework for using global open ICT standards in EU policies and public procurement. ● This should be decoupled from the revision of Directive 89/34 because the scope is different and the basic structure of European standardisation is not affected.
