ISO/IEC JTC 1 – 30th anniversary at 32nd annual plenary meeting in Vladivostok

ISO/IEC JTC 1 “Information technology” was constituted in 1987 as the first joint committee of both IEC and ISO. Originally it published standards in areas such as “Coded Character Sets” under sub-committee JTC 1/SC 2 and “Telecommunications and Information Exchange between Systems” under JTC 1/SC 6, and gradually extended its scope to many emerging areas of IT thus keeping pace with technology developments. Today, JTC 1 is made up of experts from 33 countries and has published 3062 standards in the field of IT.

During the first week of October, ISO/IEC JTC 1 held its 32nd annual plenary meeting in Vladivostok, Russia. The meeting, scheduled to coincide with the 81st IEC General Meeting and hosted by the Russian National Committee, also marked the 30th anniversary of JTC 1’s formation. The meeting brought together more than 80 experts from 18 countries to discuss developments and plan new work programs across many aspects of the Information Technology standardisation landscape.

ISO/TC 37 has been in liaison with JTC 1 since its early times. Infoterm on behalf of ISO/TC 37 contributed in the identification of characters of all European alphabets for Unicode.
