Over the years ETSI has built up a portfolio of partnership agreements with fora, consortia and international and regional Standards Development Organisations (SDOs) around the world. Experience has shown that working with others is the best way to achieve alignment between our standards and those produced by others, to avoid the duplication of effort and to ensure that our work is widely accepted and implemented. Co-operation reduces fragmentation in standardisation and is a key factor when dealing with the convergence of technologies. Our investment in partnerships is also an important means by which we ensure our activities keep abreast of market needs.

ETSI's Partnership Engagement Process is described in the ETSI Directives (Technical Working Procedures area under 1.8.1 Partnerships).

Note: Access to the full text of ETSI's Partnerships is restricted to ETSI Members holding an ETSI On-Line (EOL) account (To get an EOL account). To receive an electronic copy in pdf, please send your request to partnerships@etsi.org
