Stan­dar­diza­ti­on in the Field of Quan­tum Tech­no­lo­gies

IEC and ISO launch New Joint Tech­ni­cal Com­mit­tee on Quan­tum Tech­no­lo­gies:

The scope of this new ISO/IEC joint tech­ni­cal com­mit­tee is to deve­lop stan­dards in the field of quan­tum tech­no­lo­gies, and more par­ti­cu­lar­ly quan­tum com­pu­ting, quan­tum simu­la­ti­on, quan­tum sources, quan­tum metro­lo­gy, quan­tum detec­tors and quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons. South Korea will assu­me the Chair posi­ti­on. The Bri­tish Stan­dards Insti­tu­ti­on (BSI), the IEC and ISO mem­ber for the United King­dom, will hold the Secre­ta­ri­at. The JTC will coor­di­na­te the results of the­se efforts with rele­vant com­mit­tees and sub­com­mit­tees that have within their sco­pes the deve­lo­p­ment of spe­ci­fic sec­tor-based appli­ca­ti­ons of quan­tum tech­no­lo­gies.

“Cata­ly­sing the quan­tum revo­lu­ti­on requi­res a shared lan­guage. Stan­dards pro­vi­de the frame­work to turn diver­se quan­tum efforts into a uni­fied force, dri­ving pro­gress, ensu­ring relia­bi­li­ty, and paving the way for a quan­tum future that is secu­re, inter­ope­ra­ble and glo­bal­ly acces­si­ble,” says Ser­gio Muji­ca, ISO Secre­ta­ry-Gene­ral. 

“While stan­dards are alre­a­dy being deve­lo­ped for some aspects of quan­tum tech­no­lo­gies, the­re is a pres­sing need to have a coor­di­na­ted inter­na­tio­nal approach to stream­li­ne tech­ni­cal con­tri­bu­ti­ons and maxi­mi­ze their impact, ensu­ring grea­ter cohe­rence in the mar­ket,” explains Phil­ip­pe Metz­ger, IEC Secre­ta­ry-Gene­ral and CEO. Click here for more infor­ma­ti­on about ISO/IEC JTC 3.
