Software defined radio (SDR) can offer a variety of new services because of the significant flexibility of its system functionalities. However, its unique characteristics raise standardization issues not considered before. They can be roughly grouped into two categories: those for system implementation and those for regulation. This paper summarizes the background and effects of SDR standardization. The activities of the SDR Forum, which is actively involved in the standardization processes, and activities in European and Asian countries are described.
