Task 7 - Policy Case for Connected Devices

This task involves preparation of a global business case to support the implementation of policies for connected devices.  The objective is to provide interested governments with an initial set of information that allows them to commence development of policies for connected devices.

Governments will need additional (e.g. country-specific) information in order to fully develop their policies, but this policy case should give them sufficient information to make a significant start.  It is based on the premise that connected devices are globally-traded products and thus there is no need for every country to “reinvent the wheel” when it comes to policy development in this area - there are many commonalities.  

A report is expected to be published in late 2018.
