  • where necessary, facilitate representation and coordination of ETSI AN activities with other industry groups (e.g. TMF, 3GPP etc.),
  • create and maintain an informal, ETSI-internal coordination paper to provide a coordinated view on activities related to AN and how they relate to each other,
  • ensure coordinated provision of information and responses to requests from external bodies on AN matters relevant to ETSI,
  • report to the OCG and the Board, whenever required.

 OCG AN will not undertake technical standardisation activities.
