IntroductionGlobal Standards Symposium

The Global Standards Symposium (GSS), was held in Johannesburg on 20 October 2008, just ahead of WTSA-08, it brought together standards makers and other interested parties to discuss how developing countries can become better involved in the standards making process (bridging the standardization gap). Additionally the event examined global ICT standards challenges, such as accessibility, climate change and collaboration among standards development organisations.   For more information on the symposium’s objectives, possibilities of participation, and the formal background of GSS, click here.

Steering Committee

To assist in the preparations of the event and in identifying keynote speakers, a balanced steering committee was created to advise the Director. It worked primarily through electronic means and drafted the report of the GSS to WTSA-08. For more information on the composition of the steering committee, click here.
