Joint Systems Committee on Bio-digital Convergence: Call for Participants and Administrator of USNC TAG


Contact USNC to Get Involved

Following the establishment of an IEC/ISO Joint Systems Committee (SyC) on Bio-digital Convergence (BDC), the U.S. National Committee (USNC) of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is seeking an administrator and participants for the USNC Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to SyC BDC.

The scope for the SyC BDC includes: Systems level standardization activities in the domain of bio-digital convergence for the IEC, including ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information Technology. The committee will seek to:

  • Facilitate outreach and influence work on bio-digital convergence with ISO, other standards developing organizations, and industry consortia, in collaboration with relevant IEC entities, thus facilitating the advancement and coordination of bio-digital convergence standardization
  • Identify and assess potential new forthcoming bio-digital convergence topics and problematics that may become relevant to IEC activities, and recommend to the SMB an appropriate course of action to meet the needs of the global community

Individuals who are interested in becoming a USNC TAG participant or the USNC TAG Administrator for the USNC TAG to SyC BDC are invited to contact Betty Barro, USNC/IEC program administrator, at [email protected].

USNC TAGs develop U.S. positions on technical – and certain policy – issues that are under consideration within the IEC technical committee structure. A TAG consists of and is open to all U.S. nationally interested parties (companies, organizations, government agencies, etc.) directly and materially affected by the work of the IEC TC/SC. The process for developing USNC positions provides an opportunity for fair and equitable participation without dominance by any single interest.
