How Industry Participation Can Benefit You

GR Participation is Open to All

Industry-wide generic requirements from non-accredited organizations are established through processes that are open to funding and participation by all interested parties. Our engineers will manage and direct a project from conception to completion, with the input from funding participants as the main driver.

Benefits to Funding Participants

A company that participates in the development of a GR document will benefit in many ways. Participants will:

  • Influence the technical content of the GR through contributions, comments, and participation in the GR development meetings
  • Work with other industry leaders to discuss their business needs and the solutions to satisfy them
  • Gain a decision-making and voting role in resolving technical issues and any associated disputes related to the GR content
  • Impact worldwide business procedures and deployment strategies through their input
  • Gain earlier access to requirements information and trends as they evolve, and before general publication to the industry, which can improve time-to-market
  • Receive an Enterprise License for document deliverables
