The Commission launched an online consultation on 23 September 2015 for 14 weeks to seek views on the adoption of a Priority ICT Standards Plan which has been proposed in the Digital Single Market strategy.

Analysis of the Priority Domains for Standardisation in the Digital Single Market

The consultation collected feedback on the underlying problem analysis, and stakeholders’ views on a possible future priority-setting policy on ICT standardisation. It covered key technology areas essential to the Digital Single Market, trends, sectorial and cross-sectorial issues, and potential actions for the Commission and stakeholders including time-tables for the necessary standards development.

The results along with the advice of the European Multi-stakeholder Platform on ICT standardisation will feed into the elaboration of the Priority ICT standards Plan to be adopted by the Commission in April 2016.
