The purpose of this paper is to help raise awareness about digital standards among the small, developing countries in the ARIN service region. In doing so, we start with an overview of what digital standards are and where they are developed at the international level. We then look briefly at the extent to which stakeholders from ARIN countries participate in several key international SDOs. Based on the findings, we argue in favour of more participation from these countries in international standard-setting.
