Whether you’re a consumer, CEO of a corporation, or a government policy maker, the guidelines developed by the JointTechnical Committee (JTC 1) Information technology, have an impact on your daily life.
The JTC 1 of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), is a consensus-based, globally relevant, voluntary international standards group. More than 2000 experts from 163 countries come together to develop mutually beneficial guidelines that enhance global trade while protecting intellectual property.
Every industry develops solutions that suit their markets and customers. The ISO/IEC JTC 1 committee of experts plays a role in recommending baselines and standards for safety features, acceptable quality measures and testing, for example. When international bodies apply those recommendations, it can facilitate global acceptance of products, speed up time-to-market for new products and reduce manufacturing costs.
