Introduction of the 2016 Rolling Plan on ICT Standardisation

22 December 2015

The European Commission released today the 2016 Rolling Plan on ICT Standardisation.

The Rolling Plan is an annual work programme which gives a transparent overview of the standardisation activities needed to implement the European policies. It gives information on how the policies are planned to be practically supported.

The policy priorities are identified together by the Commission and the Multi-Stakeholder Platform. This advisory group on matters of ICT standardisation policy includes Member States, European and global standardisation bodies, industry and association representatives.

In 2016, the Internet of Things, eGovernment, Big data or Electronic Identification have been identified as key policies where standardisation plays an important role.
