Government Engagement Program on Standards

IEEE SA offers its Government Engagement Program on Standards (GEPS) to representatives of government bodies and agencies from around the world. The program provides information and resources tailored to each member’s needs and interests, including bespoke webinars, roundtables, and bi-lateral consultations with technical and standards experts.

GEPS provides a unique opportunity to hear about future standards, interact with IEEE standards leadership and technical standards experts, and exchange experiences with fellow GEPS representatives navigating similar issues at the intersection of technology, standards, policy and regulation.
