ETSI is a European Standards Organization (ESO). It is the recognized regional standards body dealing with telecommunications, broadcasting and other electronic communications networks and services.

ETSI has special role in Europe. This includes supporting European regulations and legislation through the creation of Harmonised European Standards. Only standards developed by the three ESOs (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI) are recognized as European Standards (ENs).

ETSI provides members with an open, inclusive and collaborative environment. This environment supports the timely development, ratification and testing of globally applicable standards for ICT-enabled systems, applications and services.

ETSI is at the forefront of emerging technologies across all sectors of industry and society that make use of ICT. Our 850+ member organizations are drawn from 65 countries and five continents. 

As well as enhancing reputation, the many benefits of membership include:

access to the most up-to-date information on global ICT standards
direct participation in standards development
competitive advantage through early standard adoption
opportunities to network with industry leaders
We operate on a not-for-profit basis and are one of only three bodies officially recognized by the EU as a European Standards Organization.
