Unified Strength for Global Standardization

Meet the Consortium

InDiCo-Global marks a significant collaboration, bringing together all three official European Standardisation Organisations (ESOs) – ETSI, CEN and CENELEC, each with its pool of thousands of standards experts in Europe and beyond. Alongside partners Martel Innovate, Trust-IT and COMMpla, this consortium leverages the collective strength of the individual organisations to drive European influence and competitiveness on the global standardisation stage.


ETSI is a leading international ICT standards organisation. We offer our members an open, inclusive environment to support the development and testing of globally applicable standards for ICT systems and services across all sectors of industry and society. It is an independent, non-profit organisation with a 30+ years track record of technical excellence in the ICT sector, and with a widely respected non-discriminatory IPR policy.

The European Committee for Standardization (CEN) is a business catalyst in Europe, removing trade barriers for European stakeholders such as industry, service providers, consumers and other stakeholders. Its mission is to foster the European economy in global trading, the welfare of European citizens, and the environment. Through its services CEN provides a platform for the development of European Standards and other specifications.


The European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization is officially responsible for standardization in the electrotechnical field. In an ever more global economy, CENELEC fosters innovation and competitiveness, making technology available not only to major businesses but also to SMEs through the production of voluntary standards. CENELEC creates market access at the European level but also at the international level through its cooperation agreement with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
