NENA is proud to announce that the association's application to become a member of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) has been approved. ETSI is a leading standardization organization for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) standards fulfilling European and global market needs, with a mission focused on providing platforms for interested parties to work together to produce standards for ICT systems and services that are used globally.

"NENA's participation in ETSI is a natural outcome of the increasing international adoption of NENA's i3 family of standards for NG9-1-1, including serving as the basis for the European Emergency Number Association's NG1-1-2 requirements and ETSI's EMTEL specifications for emergency calling core services," said NENA's Technical Director, Brandon Abley. "By participating directly in ETSI standards work, NENA can help to harmonize standards internationally and ensure an ecosystem with a global economy of scale, interoperability across international boundaries, and a high standard of emergency calling standards for the public and emergency services in every nation."
