Technical activity and specification development within GlobalPlatform is carried out by three committees - the Card Committee, Device Committee and Systems Committee. Collectively, the technical committees address all issues that relate to the main components of secure chip application deployment and management and are populated by representatives from GlobalPlatform's Full and Participating Member organizations. Each committee manages its workload by forming working groups, which are assigned to discuss and progress specific technical deliverables. The working groups regularly report back to the main committee on key decisions and outcomes. This approach allows members to channel their expertise and knowledge into targeted work initiatives. It also allows GlobalPlatform to benefit from the output of debate and collaboration between some of the best technical minds in the industry.

Each technical committee and its working groups progress work activities through meetings and conference calls which are scheduled as required throughout the year.

GlobalPlatform is a cross industry, not-for-profit association which identifies, develops and publishes specifications which facilitate the secure and interoperable deployment and management of multiple embedded applications on secure chip technology. Its proven technical specifications are regarded as the international industry standard for building a trusted end-to-end solution which serves multiple actors and supports several business models.
