Hello LC,

On today's LC call we briefly discussed an LC deliverable to create a list
of SDO's which KI groups would potential submit their works to. This list
will ultimately be reviewed and ratified by the BoT as the list of
'acceptable' SDOs for standards submissions. I took a first cut at the list
and the details are below.  In case you're wondering where this list is
from, I basically scanned all of the current charters for SDO
recommendations and compiled them here with some details for reference in
case LC members are not familiar with any of them.

Note: I've also posted the list here so that LC members may make changes in
real time.  Please feel free to add updates and/or comments to the page

Cheers - Joni

[1] 3GPP - http://www.3gpp.org/
The original scope of 3GPP was to produce Technical Specifications and
Technical Reports for a 3G Mobile System based on evolved GSM core networks
and the radio access technologies that they support (i.e., Universal
Terrestrial Radio Access (UTRA) both Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) and
Time Division Duplex (TDD) modes).
The scope was subsequently amended to include the maintenance and
development of the Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) Technical
Specifications and Technical Reports including evolved radio access
technologies (e.g. General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and Enhanced Data
rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE)).

[2] APEC - http://www.apec.org/
Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, or APEC, is the premier forum for
facilitating economic growth, cooperation, trade and investment in the
Asia-Pacific region . APEC is the only inter governmental grouping in the
world operating on the basis of non-binding commitments, open dialogue and
equal respect for the views of all participants. Unlike the WTO or other
multilateral trade bodies, APEC has no treaty obligations required of its
participants. Decisions made within APEC are reached by consensus and
commitments are undertaken on a voluntary basis.

[3] GSMA - http://www.gsmworld.com/
The GSMA represents the interests of the worldwide mobile communications
industry. Spanning 219 countries, the GSMA unites nearly 800 of the world’s
mobile operators, as well as more than 200 companies in the broader mobile
ecosystem, including handset makers, software companies, equipment
providers, Internet companies, and media and entertainment organisations.
The GSMA is focused on innovating, incubating and creating new opportunities
for its membership, all with the end goal of driving the growth of the
mobile communications industry.

[4] HITSP - http://www.hitsp.org/
The Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP) is a
cooperative partnership between the public and private sectors. The Panel
was formed for the purpose of harmonizing and integrating standards that
will meet clinical and business needs for sharing information among
organizations and systems.

[5] HITSP - SPI-TC - http://wiki.hitsp.org/docs/TN900/TN900-2.html
The Security and Privacy Technical Note provides the context for use of the
HITSP Security and Privacy Constructs, based on the initial AHIC Use Cases.
It includes a design map of existing standards and specifications that will
be used to meet the stated requirements of the Use Cases. It references the
Requirements, Design and Standards Selection document which describes the
process by which the Use Cases were analyzed, candidate standards were
identified and the design developed. As additional Use Cases are provided to
HITSP, the HITSP team will update this document based on any new Security
and Privacy requirements. This document will also be updated to reflect
changes to the design and relationships of the constructs.

[6] IDABC - http://ec.europa.eu/idabc/
IDABC stands for Interoperable Delivery of European eGovernment Services to
public Administrations, Businesses and Citizens. It uses the opportunities
offered by information and communication technologies to encourage and
support the delivery of cross-border public sector services to citizens and
enterprises in Europe, to improve efficiency and collaboration between
European public administrations and to contribute to making Europe an
attractive place to live, work and invest.

[7] ISO SC27 - http://www.iso.org/iso/iso_technical_committee?commid=45306
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world's largest
developer and publisher of International Standards. ISO is a network of the
national standards institutes of 162 countries, one member per country, with
a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland, that coordinates the system.
ISO is a non-governmental organization that forms a bridge between the
public and private sectors. On the one hand, many of its member institutes
are part of the governmental structure of their countries, or are mandated
by their government. On the other hand, other members have their roots
uniquely in the private sector, having been set up by national partnerships
of industry associations. Therefore, ISO enables a consensus to be reached
on solutions that meet both the requirements of business and the broader
needs of society.

[8] ITU-T - http://www.itu.int/
ITU is the leading United Nations agency for information and communication
technology issues, and the global focal point for governments and the
private sector in developing networks and services. For nearly 145 years,
ITU has coordinated the shared global use of the radio spectrum, promoted
international cooperation in assigning satellite orbits, worked to improve
telecommunication infrastructure in the developing world, established the
worldwide standards that foster seamless interconnection of a vast range of
communications systems and addressed the global challenges of our times,
such as mitigating climate change and strengthening cybersecurity.

[9] NHIN - http://healthit.hhs.gov/portal/server.pt
The Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN), a program under the Office
of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), was
established in 2004 to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare by
establishing a mechanism for nationwide health information exchange. The
NHIN is a set of conventions that provide the foundation for the secure
exchange of health information that supports meaningful use. The foundation
includes technical, policy, data use and service level agreements and other
requirements that enable data exchange, whether between two different
organizations across the street or across the country. Participants in the
NHIN agree to support a common set of web services and data content (NHIN
Core Services) that enables private, secure and interoperable communication
of health information among NHIN participants across the public Internet.

[10] NIST - http://www.nist.gov
NIST carries out its mission in four cooperative programs:
- the NIST Laboratories, conducting research that advances the nation's
technology infrastructure and is needed by U.S. industry to continually
improve products and services;
- the Baldrige National Quality Program, which promotes performance
excellence among U.S. manufacturers, service companies, educational
institutions, health care providers, and nonprofit organizations; conducts
outreach programs and manages the annual Malcolm Baldrige National Quality
Award which recognizes performance excellence and quality achievement;
- the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership, a nationwide network of
local centers offering technical and business assistance to smaller
manufacturers; and
- the Technology Innovation Program, which provides cost-shared awards to
industry, universities, and consortia for research on potentially
revolutionary technologies that address critical national and societal
- Between 1990 and 2007, NIST also managed the Advanced Technology Program.

[11] OASIS (Security Services TC, eGov MS, etc) - http://www.oasis-open.org/
OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards)
is a not-for-profit consortium that drives the development, convergence and
adoption of open standards for the global information society. The
consortium produces more Web services standards than any other organization
along with standards for security, e-business, and standardization efforts
in the public sector and for application-specific markets. Founded in 1993,
OASIS has more than 5,000 participants representing over 600 organizations
and individual members in 100 countries.

[12] OMA - http://www.openmobilealliance.org/
OMA was formed in June 2002 by nearly 200 companies including the world's
leading mobile operators, device and network suppliers, information
technology companies and content and service providers. The fact that the
whole value chain is represented in OMA marks a change in the way
specifications for mobile services are done. Rather than keeping the
traditional approach of organizing activities around 'technology silos',
with different standards and specifications bodies representing different
mobile technologies, working independently, OMA is aiming to consolidate
into one organization all specification activities in the service enabler

[13] UN/CEFACT (eGov TBG19) - http://www.unece.org/cefact/
The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) was set up in 1947
by ECOSOC. It is one of five regional commissions of the United Nations. The
others are the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific
(ESCAP), the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean
(ECLAC), the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the Economic and
Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA). Its major aim is to promote
pan-European economic integration. To do so, UNECE brings together 56
countries located in the European Union, non-EU Western and Eastern Europe,
South-East Europe and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and North
America. All these countries dialogue and cooperate under the aegis of the
UNECE on economic and sectoral issues.

[14] W3C (eGov, etc) - http://www.w3.org/
W3C primarily pursues its mission through the creation of Web standards and
guidelines. Since 1994, W3C has published more than 110 such standards,
called W3C Recommendations. W3C also engages in education and outreach,
develops software, and serves as an open forum for discussion about the Web.
In order for the Web to reach its full potential, the most fundamental Web
technologies must be compatible with one another and allow any hardware and
software used to access the Web to work together. W3C refers to this goal as
“Web interoperability.” By publishing open (non-proprietary) standards for
Web languages and protocols, W3C seeks to avoid market fragmentation and
thus Web fragmentation.

[15] WS-i - http://www.ws-i.org/
The Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) is an open industry
organization chartered to establish Best Practices for Web services
interoperability, for selected groups of Web services standards, across
platforms, operating systems and programming languages. WS-I comprises a
diverse community of Web services leaders from a wide range of companies and
standards development organizations (SDOs). WS-I committees and working
groups create Profiles and supporting Testing Tools based on Best Practices
for selected sets of Web services standards. The Profiles and Testing Tools
are available for use by the Web Services community to aid in dedeveloping
and deploying interoperable Web services. Companies interested in helping to
establish Best Practices for Web Services are encouraged to join WS-I.
