The task of WG4 is to reinforce the understanding and cooperation among global and regional standardization activities. ISA understands that standardization is a key for the success of SSL however many separated standardization activities are ongoing. A lack of understanding and cooperation will result in that many similar standards compete with each other, which eventually build barrier to interoperability, causing manufactures fail to meet all regional standards or resulting in confusion from the users etc.
ISA firstly build a communication and cooperation platform by organizing workshops, summits or symposiums. Furthermore, ISA will build database to collect, publish and update timely new development of global and regional standards and Minimum Performance Specifications (MPS).
