SIA Releases Paper on Harmonization of Standards Efforts
For the past several years, stakeholders have shown interest in how the various standards and specification developing organizations within the electronic physical security industry relate to each other.
Recently, SIA Standards has attempted to address this issue by reaching out to other groups and discussing ways to harmonize its efforts to deliver an outcome that is beneficial to the industry as a whole. Born from these discussions is the SIA Standards Committee's position paper on harmonization.
The paper describes an approach to harmonizing technical and operational standards among cooperating standards organizations, consortia and forums within the electronic physical security industry. SIA Standards will be returning to this subject in meetings throughout the year, and invites comments and stakeholder participation in standards activities.
