Resolution 76 of WTSA-12 resolves that “ITU-T Study Group 11 coordinates the sector’s activities related to the ITU C&I programme across all study groups and reviews the recommendations in the Conformance and Interoperability Business Plan for the long term implementation of the C&I programme”.
The C&I action plan agreed by the Council-12 C12/48 includes:
- “ITU-T to run a pilot of the conformity assessment programme for key technologies for which there is a market demand for such a programme”
- “ITU-T study groups to identify further technologies for which there is a market demand for a conformity assessment programme and to identify whether test specifications are available and if not, to explore the provision of test specifications”
Following the WTSA-12 and Council-12 decisions, SG11 established the SG11 Action plan
for implementation of C&I Programme which will help to achieve the goals of Resolution 76 (WTSA-12)
which will assist ITU-T SGs in their work concerning the development of ITU C&I Programme within their responsibilities and is aimed at helping developing countries in the implementation of their C&I plans in the regions.
The one of the most important part of the SG11 Action plan
is a living list of possible pilot projects of conformity assessment
against ITU Recs. The pilot projects can be based on the key technologies determined by ITU-T SGs as a technologies are suitable for conformity and/or interoperability testing.
The living list is mantling by TSB in accordance with information provided by all ITU-T SGs and JCA-CIT on the SG11 requests with the template is provided in Annex C of SG11 Action plan
