ETSIEstande Virtual | ETSIETSI is a leading standardization organization for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) standards fulfilling European and global market needs. We are at the forefront of emerging technologies across all sectors of industry and society that make use of ICT. Our 900+ member organizations are drawn from 65 countries and five continents. We were initially founded to serve European needs, but we have a global perspective. Our standards are now used the world over.  ETSI provides members with an open, inclusive and collaborative environment. This environment supports the timely development, ratification and testing of globally applicable standards for ICT-enabled systems, applications and services. ETSI is a European Standards Organization (ESO). We are the recognized regional standards body dealing with telecommunications, broadcasting and other electronic communications networks and services. We have a special role in Europe. This includes supporting European regulations and legislation through the creation of Harmonised European Standards. Only standards developed by the three ESOs (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI) are recognized as European Standards (ENs). We operate on a not-for-profit basis and are one of only three bodies officially recognized by the European Union as a European Standards Organization. We collaborate and work in partnership with different types of organizations around the world. This makes us well placed to support our members who operate in an increasingly international and competitive environment. In addition, we are a partner in the international Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPPTM). Through this project, we are helping to develop 4G and 5G mobile communications. We also work with partners around the globe in the oneM2M partnership project to develop standards for machine-to-machine communications. Our mission is to provide platforms for interested parties to work together to produce standards for ICT systems.
