GNSSN Principles

The aim of the GNSSN platform is to make information resources visible and available via web links to all affiliated safety and security related networks. The main members of GNSSN are the providers of information and network operators (the process owners). Network enhancement rests on the following principles:

  • Process owners are ultimately responsible for content and quality;
  • Process owners recognize that they are part of a broader community of networks;
  • Process owners make continuous efforts to render the network visible and conducive to international cooperation;
  • Process owners strive for common solutions, using best practices and advanced technologies, and for optimal use of resources;
  • Process owners adhere to agreed commitments;
  • Process Owners sustainability and continuous improvement of the GNSSN.
