  Ecma-International - Standards@Internet Speed
Ecma International develops “Standards@Internet Speed”: Lean, flexible organization allows high-quality standards to be drawn up in less than a year; with the fast-track procedure proposed by Ecma in 1987, an Ecma standard can be approved by ISO or IEC within as little as six months.
Ecma International was established in 1961 on initiative of the heads of three long-standing Europe-based companies — Bull, IBM Europe and ICT — with the objective of eliminating confusion.
Ecma has four membership categories with annual fees of 100, 50, 25 and 5 percent of the annual unit value (70,000 Swiss francs during the last six years), which finance the budget, while a reserve fund is available for contingencies.

 » Microsoft standard proposal turns spotlight to Ecma’s process | Between the Lines | ZDNet.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The final concerns had to do with Ecma International — a 45 year old European consortium that doesn’t require the specifications it puts its imprimatur on to be available on a royalty free or unencumbered basis.
On the surface, Ecma is not only a European consortium — Europe being one of the regions in the world that has grown increasingly intolerant of Microsoft — it’s also a multiparty consortium whose structure is similar in nature to OASIS (the consortium that put its imprimatur on the OpenDocument Format).
Now that Ecma has accepted the proposal and officially formed the TC (TC45, based on the age of Ecma International — 45 years old), one question I have is whether or not that very narrow goal statement imposes any restrictions on the latitude that the TC has to change the specification.

 Ecma to Promote UWB Standard
Earlier this week, the WiMedia Alliance announced that it had begun working with the Geneva-based nonprofit industry association Ecma International to establish WiMedia’s multiband orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MB-OFDM) ultrawideband (UWB) technology as the global UWB standard.
Ecma was chosen for this effort, Aiello says, because many of the larger companies that are members of the WiMedia Alliance are also members of Ecma.
With the forward progress indicated by this announcement, Aiello says, the stalemate currently in place at the IEEE (define) between the WiMedia Alliance and the UWB Forum may be nudged toward a resolution.
