6. Does a project have to be a member of a standards organization to participate in a standardization process

To influence the standards making process, one must be able to make submissions and encourage progress towards reaching consensus. Generally, this is done through being a member of the targeted standards organization, either directly as a project or through one of the consortium partners. This means that consortium members will have to evaluate whether to participate in standardization processes as a project, or as a project partner.

In situations where neither direct membership as a project, or participation through one of the consortium partners is an option, several alternatives can be considered
