Recommendations and Responsibilities for Smart Houses

The CLC/TC 205 WG16
"ICTSB1 / Standards for intelligent homes and buildings, smart houses"
is established following the ICTSB action A17/7.
The main objective of the WG is to monitor the performance of the ICTSB member organizations
against the identified requirements defined in the following lists.
The group will ensure proper co-ordination of the work done in the respective organizations and
report back to the ICTSB.
These tasks were confirmed by ICTSB and by CENELEC 105BT decision D105/055 and 106BT
decision D106/044

The following lists are mapping the suggested responsibilities to identified recommendations and
requirements .
   The WG16 identified the bodies/committees that should be responsible for each of the
   recommendations and requirements listed of the High Level Strategy Group for ICT,
   the ICTSB Consumer Project Team and the ICTSB Project Team on Design for All and
   Assistive Technologies.
   In some of the cases the WG suggested liaisons to be established or reinforced between
   existing bodies.
   In other cases the WG suggested the consideration of the creation of New Work Items
   and CEN/ISSS workshops.

The listed Standardisation Bodies, Organisations and Technical Committees
are kindly asked to
   - comment the enclosed
   - comment on what has been covered, and by which standards
   - describe their corresponding actions, deliverables and timetables
   - correct and/or complete the columns
      "Deliverable", Lead Responsibility", Priority", "Proposed timetable"
The answers should be provided to CLC/TC 205/WG16 by end of October 2001.
                                                                                          Page 3 of 11

The source of the enclosured List J is Annex J of
Executive Summary Report from the ICTSB Project Team "Design for All" dtd. 15.05.2000]
This report has been developed in response to Commission Mandate 273, ”Design for All and
Assistive Technology” which requests the European Standards bodies to identify standards
needed to make the Information Society accessible to everyone, including elderly people and
people with special needs.

The main goal of this report was to identify the future standardisation needs for ICT in order to
create a society that is accessible to all citizens.

The main result of the report was a proposed work programme for the European Standards bodies
that lists work items to be standardised to achieve the above, goal among other things for Smart

The work programme details work items proposed for standardisation, identifies which
standardisation bodies should be responsible for carrying out the proposed work items, when
(timetable) and with which priority.

The work programme for Smart Houses = Annex J was discussed and modified and is now
mapping the responsibilities to identified recommendations and requirements, see list J on page 3.

The source of the enclosured List A is Annex A of
an ICTSB-ad hoc meeting which was taking account the HLSG 2report #4 and Consumer
requirements for Smart Houses.
The purpose of the meeting was to clarify the standardization activities in the field of smart
houses, home and building electronic systems in relation to access networks (residential
gateways) and to consider consumer standardization requirements.

As for continuation of the work, various possibilities have been mentioned, and the meeting was of
the opinion that it should be up to the ICTSB to decide. On one hand, the meeting considered that
it had fulfilled its goals by facilitating dialogue, collaboration and common understanding between
the parties involved, and that ICTSB members were now in a position to make best use of the
Requirements documents into their work as suggested by the report. On the other hand, it was felt
that some issues may deserve more work before the corresponding requirements can be fully
understood and applied. It was also mentioned that some of the requirements as they currently
stand could not be directly translated into work items due to the lack of an applicable business
case, precise scope and preliminary study of ongoing related activities.

The listed requirements in Annex A was discussed and modified and is now mapping the
responsibilities to identified recommendations and requirements, see list A on page 8.
