Five leading global organizations have announced that they have signed a statement emphasizing the importance of a jointly developed set of principles establishing a modern paradigm for global, open standards. IEEE, Internet Architecture Board (IAB), Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), Internet Society and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) are inviting other standards organizations, governments, corporations and technology innovators globally to endorse the OpenStand principles.

The shared OpenStand principles are based on the effective and efficient standardization processes that have made the Internet and Web the premiere platforms for innovation and borderless commerce. According to them, they are also proven in their ability to foster competition and cooperation, support innovation and interoperability and drive market success.

The OpenStand principles strive to encapsulate that successful standardization model and make it extendable across the contemporary, global economy?s gamut of technology spaces and markets. The principles comprise a modern paradigm in which the economics of global markets?fueled by technological innovation?drive global deployment of standards, regardless of their formal status within traditional bodies of national representation.

The OpenStand principles demand cooperation among standards organizations; adherence to due process, broad consensus, transparency, balance and openness in standards development; commitment to technical merit, interoperability, competition, innovation and benefit to humanity; availability of standards to all, and voluntary adoption.
