CCSDS Member Agency is a governmental or quasi-governmental
organization that fully participates in all CCSDS activities
and provides a commensurate level of support. Only one
agency representing a given country or multinational
organization may participate as a Member Agency of the CCSDS.
A Member Agency shall adopt the Charter and must make best
efforts to ensure the adherence of their agency’s internal
standards to the applicable CCSDS Recommended Standards.
Each CCSDS Agency must formally appoint its delegates to the
CCSDS technical Working Groups which that Agency supports. Member Agencies are also invited
and encouraged to submit concept or position papers for
discussion within the working groups.
Perhaps most importantly, Member Agencies have CCSDS voting
rights, which are exercised through Member Agency
Representatives. Member Agency Representatives make up the
CCSDS Management Council (CMC), and meet twice a year to
decide on the business and direction of the CCSDS.
