This paper describes a new database with detailed information on standardization procedures at the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). 3GPP is the most relevant standard‐setting organization (SSO) in the field of mobile telecommunications. The present database contains information on membership, meeting attendance, chairmanship, work items, contributions, and votes at 3GPP. These data shed light on the technical complexity of standard development and illustrate the importance of voluntary contributions from SSO members.
