ITU will hold a Consultation meeting to capture the views of all stakeholders with regards to Resolution 76: Studies related to conformance and interoperability testing, assistance to developing countries, and a possible future ITU mark programme.

Participants will learn how conformity assessment can be beneficial to all stakeholders, increasing the probability of interoperability, quality of standards and quality of service. Those wishing to submit contributions to the discussion should send them to tsbworkshops@itu.int by 11 July 2009.

2008’s World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly (WTSA-08) addressed conformance and interoperability testing resulting in the first Resolution on the topic. The aim is to have ITU-T Study Groups more actively involved in developing test suites in key areas of ICTs and to have ITU-T’s secretariat (TSB) assist developing countries in their capacity to conduct tests. This includes the planning and creation of their own test facilities.

More information and registration details here.

ITU has given first stage approval (consent) to a new standard that enables an IPTV end user to locate and subscribe to content coming from different, independent service providers.

The standard will enable a greater deal of choice for end-users and will help service providers offer a more competitive package.

Recommendation ITU-T H.770 - Mechanisms for service discovery and selection for IPTV - describes the mechanisms for service provider discovery, service discovery and selection. Services such as linear TV and video-on-demand are addressed with metadata that describes programming and delivery protocols detailed.

A new portal bringing together many standardization resources on accessibility has been launched.

The page is a one stop shop for accessibility resources with links to all ITU-T work areas, tools, workshops, news, photos and other resources. For example it carries links to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability, an ITU Tutorial: "Making ITU Accessible: Web Design, Web Conferencing and Real Time Web Captioning" and the G3ict-ITU Toolkit for Policy Makers on e-Accessibility & Service Needs for Persons with Disabilities.

In addition it links to the Telecommunications Accessibility Checklist which allows standards authors to ensure that they are taking into account the needs of those to whom accessibility to ICTs are restricted. The checklist is a tool which helps to ensure that accessibility needs are taken into account at an early stage of the standards development process, rather than "retrofitted".

The new page can be found at:  http://www.itu.int/ITU-T/accessibility/index.html
