Position paper from German organisations on ICT standardisation reform

BDI, BITKOM, DIN and DKEhave released a position paper on the European Standardisation System(ESS). 

The ESS has proven to be extremely successful. It efficiently and effectively regulates the development of standards, there is therefore no need to
make any major changes to the current ESS. The ESS should be strengthened by the review currently underway. The underlying principles of the ESS are transparency, openness, the appropriate representation of interests, the coherence of the standards collection, an open public enquiry procedure in
the language of each Member State, and adherence to the principles of the WTO Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade.
