ICT Standards for SMEs

About SBS

Small Business Standards (SBS) is a European non-profit association co-financed by the European Union and EFTA Member States. Its goal is to represent and advocate for SMEs’ interests in the standardisation process at European and international levels. SBS also aims at raising awareness among SMEs about the benefits of standards and encourages companies to get involved in the standardisation process.

The European DIGITAL SME Alliance is a founding member of SBS and is responsible for the ICT sectoral approach which is a set of initiatives aimed at improving the representation of  digital SMEs’ interests in European ICT related standardisation activities.

Read more about the benefits of ICT Standards for SMEs and how to get involved in the standardisation process with our guides below.


SMEs could potentially benefit the most from standards but they face critical challenges when it comes to taking up standards & using them. To help address this issue, SBS has developed the SME Compatibility Test for Standards.
