Ecma International is an industry association founded in 1961 and dedicated to the standardization of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Consumer Electronics (CE). History
The aims of Ecma are:
* To develop, in co-operation with the appropriate National, European and International organizations Standards and Technical Reports in order to facilitate and standardize the use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) and Consumer Electronics (CE).
* To encourage the correct use of Standards by influencing the environment in which they are applied.
* To publish these Standards and Technical Reports in electronic and printed form; the publications can be freely copied by all interested parties without restrictions.
For over forty years Ecma has actively contributed to world-wide standardization in information technology and telecommunications. More than 370 Ecma Standards and 90 Technical Reports of high quality have been published, more than 2/3 of which have also been adopted as International Standards and/or Technical Reports.
The organizational structure of Ecma is a simple, flat one: the technical work is done by the Technical Committees, and the results of this work can be submitted twice a year to the General Assembly for approval for publication.
The Ecma procedures consist of a set of By-laws, Rules and a Code of Conduct in Patent Matters.
