The OpenStand web presence is now archived.

Open Stand embraces principles for a modern paradigm for standards, where the economics of global markets, fueled by technological advancements, drive global deployment of standards regardless of their formal status.

Supported by the inaugural signatory organizations of IEEE, the Internet Society (ISOC), the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the Internet Architecture Board (IAB), and W3C, hundreds more indicated their belief in these principles by signing as supporters.

The principles as a relevant framework for those interested in open standards and how they are developed continue to be available through this website, as well as articles highlighting examples of open standards use.

Thank you to the founding partners of OpenStand and to all who support the OpenStand paradigm.
