Global Engagement

Supporting collaboration, development and adoption of standards across the globe with industry, governments and the public.


ISO/IEC JTC 1 external link was formed by ISO and IEC for the purpose of jointly developing standards in the field of Information Technology. Information technology standardisation has some unique requirements as a consequence of the pace of innovation. Therefore, ISO and IEC have established a joint technical committee, ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information Technology. ISO/IEC JTC 1 has accordingly developed and maintained its own procedures, as well as collaborating with the International Telecommunication Union - Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) in the maintenance of a guide for collaboration between ISO/IEC JTC 1 and ITU-T and rules for the drafting and presentation of common ISO/IEC/ITU-T texts.
