On October 27, officials from NENA and APCO International adopted a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to guide the joint standards development work undertaken by the two organizations when renewing a joint standard. One such example is the Standard for Telecommunicator Emergency Response Taskforce (TERT) Deployment, which is up for its next five-year review in 2020. Separately, the two organizations conduct their standards work utilizing somewhat different procedures; the MoU serves as a bridge across these small differences in process.
?Developing standards is an essential activity for both NENA and APCO, and our memberships benefit when the two organizations can work together. NENA is pleased to adopt this MoU so that mutually-beneficial joint standards work can move forward,? said NENA President, Gary Bell, ENP.
