  7. <h1>FSFE's input on ICT standards for the Digital Single Market</h1>
  8. <p newsteaser="yes"> FSFE provided the European Commission <a href="https://wiki.fsfe.org/ICT_priorities">input on setting priorities
  9. in ICT standards</a> and answered to the <a href="https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/en/news/public-consultation-priority-ict-standards-plan">public consultation on the adoption of a Priority ICT Standards Plan</a>
  10. which has been proposed in the Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy.</p>
  11. <p>According to our position, and in line with our <a href="https://fsfe.org/activities/policy/eu/digital-single-market-comments.en.html">DSM
  12. strategy evaluation</a>, priorities in standardisation must be set carefully.
  13. FSFE believes following priorities at the EU level has to be set:</p>
  14. <ul>
  15. <li><p>Promote standards that are open, minimalistic and implementable
  16. with Free Software. These standards have proven to be sustainable,
  17. interoperable, pro-competitive and transparent. These standards allow
  18. actors of different size to easily adopt and implement them that in return
  19. will guarantee widest competition of goods and services on the market,
  20. and the widest proliferation of technology.</p></li>
  21. <li><p>Use Free Software as reference implementation of the standard and
  22. to make sure a reference implementation is published under a Free Software
  23. licence, including all software that has been developed with public funds
  24. to be released as Free Software. As a consequence, this practice will
  25. contribute to digitisation of the European industries and an increase in digital skills amongst population.</p></li>
  26. <li><p>Refrain from <a href="https://fsfe.org/activities/os/why-frand-is-bad-for-free-software.en.html">harmful FRAND licensing policies</a> in the field of software, internet
  27. and web, as these areas have evolved and developed based on open standards
  28. that are free from royalties and other restrictions.</p></li>
