The CEN and CENELEC Workshop, initiated by Nokia and IP-Europe, publishes its CWA “Principles and guidance for licensing Standard Essential Patents in 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), including the Industrial Internet” 

Kicked-off on 6 October 2017 in Paris, with AFNOR as Workshop Secretariat, this Workshop aimed to produce a CWA describing principles and guidance for licensing Standard Essential Patents in 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), including the Industrial Internet.

Following a final public commenting phase which ended on 2018-12-31, the CWA is published on 2019-06-12.

The published CWA 17431 is made available for download in line with the prepayment policy on the distribution of CWAs in the R&D and ICT domains (see CEN-CENELEC Guide 10 “Policy on dissemination, sales and copyright of CEN-CENELEC Publications”).
