Legal framework for European
Standardization
ETSI official recognition as ESO in summer
1992
• Under 83/189/EEC
Regulation 1025/2012 (replaced 98/34)
• ETSI recognised as ESO
• ETSI can be mandated by EC to produce standards
•
•

and specifications to meet policy needs, esp.
legislative needs (e.g. Harmonized Standards)
ICT standardization distinctly recognised
ETSI direct participation model recognised

Co-operation with EC and EFTA
EC and EFTA are Counsellors of ETSI since 1988
• Full participation rights, full access, no voting rights
• Participate at all levels: General Assembly, Board, TBs etc.
• Multiple DGs participate

Mandate Process
5
SEM26-01
Mandate is an implementing decision
• Formal instrument, leading to formal standards
Mandates start in an EC service
• Any unit, any DG
Consult with ESOs at an early stage
DG Enterprise Committee on Standards (B.5)
• For member state approval
• Full examination procedure (Art. 18 1025/2012)
• 9 months to 2 years!
Mandates do not always mean money
ESOs can accept or reject a mandate
© ETSI 2014. All rights reserved
Rolling plan for ICT standardization
EC standardization plan to support ICT policies
EC document addressing broad range of stakeholders
(not just ESOs)
Developed in cooperation with ICT MSP
Updated annually or by change request
• DG Enterprise E.4 and DG Connect (T. Reibe)
• Consultation with ICT MSP and other EC services
All EC funded ICT standardization actions need to be
linked to rolling plan
Important guidance for ETSI’s work programme
6

However
Rolling plan does not cover:
• Space standardization
• Radio standardization
• Aeronautical
• Maritime
• Anything non-ICT

ICT Multi-stakeholder platform
8
SEM26-01
Unique expert group comprising EC, EFTA,
member states, ESOs, international SDOs,
fora, consortia, societal and business
stakeholders
Advise the EC on ICT policy and
standardization
Review draft mandates in ICT domain
ICT technical specification evaluation and
recommendation for use in public
procurement (Art. 13, 14, annex 2 1025/2012)
© ETSI 2014. All rights reserved
Annual Union Work Programme
Annual EU standardization programme
• Covers all sectors and industries
• Produced under 1025/2012
• Published by end June each year (ENTR B.5)
• Less than 20 pages
• Addressed to ESOs as planning tool
Seen by member states and societal
stakeholders in advance
• ESOs have 2 week comment period
9

Framework Partnership Agreement
ETSI as ESO is able to have a Framework Partnership
Agreement with EC and EFTA
• Allows EC/EFTA to negotiate and finance specific agreements (action
grant, operating grant etc.) directly with us
FPA sets out financial and procedural rules to be followed
• To comply with EC financial regulations
7 years duration
Currently, no FPA since end 2013
• Slow negotiations!
• Without FPA, no EC financing for ETSI
• FPA expected by early May
10
SEM26-01

Forms of financing
2 forms: Action Grants and Operating Grant
Action Grants cover specific actions in support of EC policies
• ETSI submits proposals (based on mandates, ICT rolling plan, legislation,
•
•
•
Annual Union WP etc.)
EC evaluates
If successful, Action Grant is negotiated and agreed
Then work can start
Working well for past 25 years
New regulation requires Lump-Sum financing for all standardization
actions
• Any action grant leading to production of standards or specifications
• Not Reports or other actions e.g. interop events, workshops
Lump-sum financing discussions not started yet with all ESOs!
• Very unlikely to conclude in near term
11

Operating Grant
Each ESO receives annual Operating Grant
• Contribution towards European Standardization infrastructure
• In case of ETSI, cross-secretariat support to all actions supporting EC
policies except 3GPP and some services
• ESO submits Work Programme in September for following year
• In support of EC Annual Union Policy Letter to ESOs
• 2013 was first year, policy letter written only by ENTR B.
• Annual reporting in March of following year
• Essential for DG Connect to ensure their views are included if you
want a response from ETSI under Operating Grant
2014: severe cut in DG ENTR standardization budget (25%)
ETSI Operating Grant cut by 1/3 (2013 to 2014)

How ETSI uses rolling plan, work
programme etc.
ETSI circulates to sec, board, TBs
• AUWP, Rolling plan
ETSI members decide which actions to propose and
which WIs to create
ETSI submit proposals to EC
EC evaluates and agrees final grants with ETSI
ETSI members may produce required standards
voluntarily, no action grant request
ETSI may see no member interest in policy request

placing on the market, free movement and putting into
service in the Community of radio equipment and
telecommunications terminal equipment

What does a manufacturer need to do?
(RTTE Directive)
Meet “essential requirements”
• Health & safety
• Electromagnetic compatibility
• Avoidance of harmful interference
• Radio equipment only
• Possibly others, if invoked by the EC
Carry out “essential radio test suites”
Meet National radio interface regulations
Inform member state before placing on the market
• If using non-harmonised radio spectrum

How can ETSI help (1)?
A manufacturer
can show that he
meets essential
requirements by
applying ETSI
Harmonized
Standards
21

Harmonised Standards
“a European standard adopted on the basis of a request
made by the Commission for the application of Union
harmonisation legislation” [ Reg. 1025/2012 Art. 2 (1) (c)]
“Where apparatus meets the relevant harmonised
standards or parts thereof whose reference numbers
have been published in the Official Journal of the
European Communities, Member States shall presume
compliance with those of the essential requirements
referred to in Article 3 as are covered by the said
harmonised standards or parts thereof.” [RTTED:
Article 5.1]

CEPT-ETSI Memorandum
of Understanding
ETSI develops “System Reference
Documents” to accompany requests for
aligned radio frequencies in CEPT countries
CEPT/ECC studies compatibility and develops
conditions for spectrum sharing
ETSI members may participate in studies and
the drafting of spectrum measures
ETSI is a permanent observer in CEPT/ECC
groups that adopt Decisions &
Recommendations on spectrum allocations
Individual National Administrations may
commit themselves to implement CEPT/ECC
Decisions
28
SEM26-01
© ETSI 2014. All rights reserved
But...??!!
The implementation of
CEPT/ECC deliverables is subject
to the decision of National
governments
• If use of frequencies is not harmonised in
all EU Member States, the manufacturer is
required to inform the National authorities
4 weeks before placing his equipment on
the market!
29

How can ETSI help (3)?
ETSI and CEPT assist the European
Commission to develop spectrum
measures which are binding on
National governments.
Commission Decisions provide legal
certainty in:
• EU Member States
• EEA Countries
