Asia-Pacific Telecommunity Standardization Program (ASTAP)


The Asia-Pacific Telecommunity (APT) Standardization Program (ASTAP) was formed in 1998 in order to establish regional cooperation on standardization among APT Members and to contribute to global standardization activities. It is one of the major APT Work Program in the Area of Standardization and Technology Development. Over the years, ASTAP has matured to fulfil its objectives and has become a regional platform for cooperative standardization activities. Currently, ASTAP is working on many important areas related to standardization and technology development. Among those are Bridging Standardization Gap, Green ICT, EMF Exposure, M2M, Future Network, NGN, Seamless Access Communication, Multimedia Applications, Information Security, SNLP and Accessibility and Usability. Recently, ASTAP has included the issues of Conformance and Interoperability (C&I) in its activities.
