Task Force China

The Task Force China is a group of professionals aiming to promote data spaces and position them as a de-facto standard for secure and trusted data sharing in China and the world.

In today’s data-driven world, the exchange of industrial data is becoming increasingly prevalent. As technology advances and new standards like IDS emerge, it is vital to ensure interoperability by enabling companies to participate in decentralized and federated dataspaces. Our primary purpose is to develop technology and define the existing mechanisms through which IDS handles situations involving industrial and cross-border data sharing in China.

Join the Task Force China to play a crucial role in developing IDS-based technology for cross-border data sharing.

Task Force Legal Framework

Legal aspects are crucial in ensuring innovation and safeguarding sovereignty within data spaces. The Task Force Legal Framework has been established by IDSA to discuss and align legal issues with other initiatives, strengthening IDSA’s internal and external positioning on legal matters.

The Task Force Legal Framework has two areas of activity: public voice and tasks and solutions. Public voice involves external communication with stakeholders, providing input to regulatory proposals and proactive impulses on legal issues. Tasks and solutions support working groups and projects, finding answers to general regulatory questions and specific contractual issues.
