Abstract : This Technical Information Bulletin describes the linkages between the objective of the principal national and international telecommunication standards development organizations and those of the U.S. Government's Federal Telecommunication Standards Program (FTSP). In the process it is shown that the categories of standards to promote interworking of the national telecommunication networks of the various countries of the world, which the CCITT(International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee) in particular must develop, are the same ones needed to satisfy the interoperability objectives of the FTSP among networks of the various Federal agencies. Finally the point is made that the NCS, in managing the FTSP, must continue to exploit the similarities in objectives by pro-active participation in selected national and international standards development groups. Such participation is necessary to ensure insofar as possible that national and international standards emerging from these organizations are timely and responsiveness to Federal government needs so that the benefits of uniform Federal and national standards may be realized.
