Standards Cooperation

IEEE SA coordinates with standards bodies around the world. Our engagement with these bodies is through membership, liaisons or through formal agreements--which can have many purposes, including to:

  • Facilitate partnering on joint efforts or events

  • Promote adoption and/or distribution of standards in different regions or countries

  • Encourage closer cooperation between organizations

  • Facilitate coordination and collaboration between technical communities



Standards Institutions

There are a diversity of standards institutions involved in the development of standards used nationally, regionally and globally that impact trade, drive competition and innovation, increase interoperability and help ensure safety. As a global standards developing body working across a multitude of technical domains and industry sectors, IEEE engages with many standards institutions to facilitate understanding about the IEEE standardization paradigm and for adoption of standards, as well as to provide flexible frameworks for cooperation and collaboration.
