Position paper - AmCham EU's position on Standards for the Digital Single Market

24 Jun 2016
Digital Economy

Standards are of critical relevance for the creation of interoperable solutions for the disparate needs of the Digital Single Market (DSM), involving all industrial sectors. Experience has shown that the most successful standards are those that have broad stakeholder support – especially from industry as the main contributor of technology and commercial expertise to standardisation.

AmCham EU believes that voluntary, market- and consensus-driven standardisation processes should be protected and incentivised, as they are a precondition to allow for the inclusion of the best technologies in standards.

AmCham EU also calls upon all stakeholders to pay close attention to the global context of standardisation.
