International Standard of Smart City Indicators Approved with the Participation of the Russian Federation


According to the presentation of the relevant ISO/IEC working group on the standardization of Smart Cities, the first international standard was approved that defines the indicators of information and communication systems that underlie the implementation and evaluation of Smart Cities projects. Experts of the Russian Federation from Cyber-Physical Systems Technical Committee based on RVC participated in all stages of its development as co-editors.

Following the meeting of the Working Group on Smart Cities of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), in which the Russian Federation is represented by Cyber-Physical Systems Technical Committee under Rosstandart, the final edition international standard “Information technology. Smart Cities. Smart City ICT indicators” (Information technology — Smart city ICT indicators) was introduced. The document defines a comprehensive set of assessment indicators related to the implementation and use of information and communication technologies in Smart Cities.

The adoption of this international standard is an excellent example of expert cooperation. The document is based on international best practices and expert approaches. It is already being tested in several countries around the world, including China. I am sure that the Russian national equivalent of this document will help the harmonious development of Smart Cities projects in Russia.

The official presentation of the international standard took place on December 4, 2019, during the international conference “Smart Cities International Standard Forum”, held in Jinan (Shandun Province, China). Experts and developers from China, Japan, Australia, India, Great Britain, the USA, Canada, and Russia took part in the presentation of the standard.

The participation of experts from Russia in the development of the international standard ensured the earliest possible preparation of a version of the national standard of Smart Cities adapted to the Russian specifics. The basic approaches of this document will contribute to the quality development and implementation of subsequent planned national standards in this area. That is how we can ensure the unity of architectures, compatibility of solutions, power of attorney, security, and measurability of the implemented projects of Smart Cities.

The draft Russian equivalent of the approved international standard is planned to be submitted for public discussion on the official website Cyber-Physical Systems Technical Committee at the beginning of 2020. In addition, critical practical aspects of the document will form the basis of the relevant sections of the preliminary national standard (PNST) “Information technology. Smart City. Indicators”, developed with the participation of Rostelecom PJSC and the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation.
