JTC 1 is the standards development environment where experts come together to develop worldwide Information and Communication Technology (ICT) standards for business and consumer applications.

Additionally, JTC 1 provides the standards approval environment for integrating diverse and complex ICT technologies. These standards rely upon the core infrastructure technologies developed by JTC 1 centers of expertise complemented by specifications developed in other organizations.

Since its inception in 1987, JTC 1 has brought about a number of very successful and relevant ICT standards in the fields of multimedia (e.g.: MPEG), IC cards ("smart cards"), ICT security, database query and programming languages as well as character sets, to name just a few.

The final report of the JTC 1 Study Group on Cloud Computing (SGCC) is now available.  The report, prepared by JTC 1/SC 38 (Distributed application platforms and services) identifies the future work of JTC 1/SC 38 in the area of Cloud Computing, and provides a basis for JTC 1/SC 38 working with other relevant JTC1 sub committees and with groups in other standards developing organizations.
