Working Group Standards Approval is responsible for the national voting on European standards for ICT, cyber security, accessibility and energy consumption. The group consists of small and medium-sized enterprises, big market players, governmental organisations and other organisations with Swedish interests. Every year the group handles some hundred standards, some of which are harmonised standards for the Radio Equipment Directive. Members participating in the working group get the latest information on requirements for future radio communication systems, cyber security, energy consumption and the development of the European standardisation system. Being an active member provides you with the possibility to influence the ongoing work and the capability to develop products and services for the European Common Market.
Working Group Networking Interworking’s aim is to ensure functional requirements within and between public communication networks and between public communication networks and public safety answering points for emergency communication in case where there isn’t any European or international specification available. The membership consists today of public communication network operators, manufacturers, consultants and governmental organisations within the ICT sector. The group develops application guides and if needed national Swedish standards. For new technical areas, the group also develops technical studies. Some of the documents are used in the development of regulations, others as basis for agreements between operators.
Working Group Human Factors’ main task is to provide input to the development of the accessability standard EN 301 549 (Accessibility requirements for ICT products and services). The standard specifies the functional accessibility requirements applicable to ICT products and services, together with a description of the test procedures and evaluation methodology for each accessibility requirement in a form that is suitable for use in public procurement within Europe. EN 301 549 is a harmonised standard in Europe. Manufacturers, other economic operators or conformity assessment bodies can use harmonised standards to demonstrate that products, services or processes comply with relevant EU legislation. The European Accessability Act (EAA) will most likely also refer to the standard which is a task for this working group to provide input on. The working group is also providing input regarding Human Factors of Emerging Technologies such as AI and Internet of Things to the standardisation work done within ETSI. As a member of ITS Working Group Human Factors it is possible to suggest other areas within the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) where standardisation activities would make a positive difference from a Human Factors perspective.
Arbetsgruppen bevakar framtagandet av standarder inom ETSI TC Cyber, WG QSC (Quantum-Safe Cryptography) och ETSI TC ESI (Electronic Signatures and Infrastructures). Gruppen diskuterar krav från de olika intressenter och samlar Svenska synpunkter för gemensam input. Eftersom cybersäkerhet är en viktig aspekt i olika sektorer sammanförar gruppen små och stora organisationer, myndigheter och företag med svensk anknytning.
