A number of regulatory bodies is working all over the world in the area of emergency communications. In the following we list the most relevant ones for the satellite case. ETSI European Telecommunications Standards Institute Organisation: Independent/non-profit Standards Organisation Standards: Standards by consensus of members, and formal voting procedure. Summary: The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) is an independent, non profit organization, whose mission is to produce telecommunications standards for today and for the future. A technical committee of ETSI, SES, is responsible for all types of satellite communication services (including mobile and broadcasting) and for all types of earth station equipment (especially the radio frequency interfaces and network and/or user interfaces). line TC/SES The Technical Committee (TC) on Satellite Earth Stations and Systems (SES) is responsible for satellite communications. The field includes all types of satellite communication services and applications (including mobile and broadcasting), as weel as all types of earth stations and earth station equipment, especially the radio frequency interfaces and network and/or user interfaces and the protocols implemented in earth stations and satellite systems. TC SES is also the primary committee for co-ordinating the position of ETSI with relevant ITU Study Groups. In the SES TC a new working group has been recently created to address issues in the area of emergency communications. Working Group ETSI/SES/SatEC (new!) Summary: To perform standardization in the area of satellite emergency communication in particular involving broadband services. The WG will liaise with any relevant bodies, in particular with EMTEL and MESA. The first meeting of the WG was held at ETSI on the 7th Nov. 2006.
