1Category A Liaisons - Organizations that make an effective contribution to the work of an ISO or IEC technical committee or subcommittee for questions dealt with by this technical committee or subcommittee. Such organizations are sent copies of all relevant documentation and are invited to meetings. They may nominate experts to participate in a Working Group/Project Team.

2Category C Liaisons - Organizations that make an effective technical contribution and participate actively at the WG or project level of ISO/IEC JTC 1 or its SCs (can only be established with ISO/IEC JTC 1).

3Category D Liaisons - Organizations that make a technical contribution to and participate actively in the work of an IEC working group, maintenance team, or project team (can only be established with IEC Working Groups/Project Teams).
