In order to unleash the potential of cloud computing, the European Commission Communication on Cloud Computing released on September 27, 2012 identified cutting through the jungle of standards as a one of the key actions to foster mass adoption of cloud computing.

The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSIL) was asked to coordinate with stakeholders in the cloud standards ecosystems and devise standards roadmaps in support of EU policy in critical areas such as security, interoperability and data portability, and to analyse end users' needs and the relationship with open source. ETSI therefore launched the Cloud Standards Coordination in collaboration with a series of prominent players.

The future cloud standardisation activities are currently under discussion in the context of the recently launched Digital Single Market strategy for Europe.
