OAGI, an XML business language standards group, recently joined four International Standards Organizations in a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Electronic Business, which includes the IEC, ISO, ITU and UN/ECE [Boston.com].

  • "The purpose of the MoU is to minimize the risk of divergent and competitive approaches to standardization, avoid duplication of efforts and confusion amongst users," said Houlin Zhao, Director of ITU Telecommunication Standardization Bureau. "Under the MoU's Management Group, for instance, ITU technical groups will be able to share their agendas with OASIS technical committees to promote convergence where appropriate and advance the interests of the marketplace at-large."
