ETSI - European Telecommunications Standards Institute

ETSI, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, broadcast and Internet technologies. Our standards enable the technologies on which business and society rely. For example, ETSI standards for GSM™, DECT™, Smart Cards and electronic signatures have helped to revolutionize modern life all over the world.

ETSI is officially recognized by the European Union as a European Standards Organization and it is a not-for-profit organization with more than 800 member organizations worldwide, drawn from 67 countries and five continents. Members include the world’s leading companies and innovative R&D organizations. ETSI addresses the technical issues which will drive the economy of the future and improve life for the next generation. ETSI's mission is to provide the platforms where interested parties come together and collaborate on the production of standards for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) systems and services that are used globally.

ETSI's list of members includes some of the top international telecoms companies and national administrations. At the same time, about a quarter of our members are Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) or micro-enterprises and 15% are research bodies or universities. User organizations also play a key role in ETSI in ensuring that our standards meet the needs of consumers.
