Abstract:In this paper it is argued that openness in standards raises its quality level. This study is done not only from a technical business administration point of view but also from a legal perspective. It is shown that applying legal principles, in particular the principles of Good Governance can stimulate openness in standards. With these it appears that the distinction between official SDOs and other forums and consortia is irrelevant in achieving openness. The setting of this study is illustrated by two practical standardization cases in which openness plays an important role. The results are applied to the important standardization challenge in the upcoming world of Smart Grids.
