What are sector operators and what do they do?
Standards are developed in standards committees or technical committees (TCs). Each of these has its own specialty.
For example, there are TCs for environment, energy, biodiversity, ...
Sectoral operators (SOs) with the same expertise provide administrative and technical follow-up to a part of those standards committees.
The SOs are recognised by the Board of Directors of NBN. They act in the name of NBN and on its behalf. They thus form the link between the standards committee experts and NBN. And they involve all interested parties in standards development.
This means they’re actually NBN’s right hand in technical committees.
Why are sector operators important?
Sector operators are specialists within their sector. They're also close to the business world. Thanks to their network of experts, they disseminate all important information on standards development within their domain. This makes them essential partners for NBN.
