ICT & standards information

Information and communication technology (ICT) is not just a fashionable trend soon to be forgotten.

The importance, development and application of this technology are increasingly reflected in day-to-day reality and in the management of activities in daily life, in and out of the office.

The revolution that has taken place and still is taking place in the field of telecommunications and information technology can be seen in the way people live, work, write, ask for and get information, or even think: business, education, health, social and cultural activities are some of the fields most affected by the introduction and use of these new tools called computers, e-mail and the Internet.

It is obvious that such a revolution affects and conditions the world of standardization too, forcing all the national and international standards bodies, including ESA, not only to accept this challenge, but also to get properly equipped in order to face it and to keep abreast of the times.

Information on national and international standard is absolutely vital to industry government bodies, consumers in general and other user groups in new products development or design conformity assessment and other related applications. Hence, the role ICT plays in standards development and provision standards and related information has become indispensable in providing access/retrieval of information efficiently and effectively.
