ISO Standards and Patents

At its meeting in March 2006, Council approved a common patent policy between ISO, IEC and ITU and requested that this be supplemented by common implementation guidelines and a common patent statement and licensing declaration form. These latter elements were approved by the Technical Management Board and the equivalent bodies in IEC and ITU in February 2007.
