Interoperability specifications, such as Khronos open standards, can significantly widen their market recognition and adoption by becoming International Standards. International Standards are recognized throughout the world, and in many countries form the regulatory basis for public procurement of IT goods and services. An International Standard also provides important assurances of stability and longevity.
Khronos was approved as a ISO/IEC JTC 1 PAS Submitter In May 2021. The first specification that Khronos will submit for transposition to an International Standard is glTF 2.0. As a step in this process, Khronos has today released a new canonical glTF 2.0.0 specification. If the transposition ballot at JTC 1 succeeds, glTF 2.0.0 will become a JTC 1 International Standard some time in 2022.
