The new organigramme for Directorate-General XIII of the Commission of the European Communities became official on 24 May 1993, setting out the revised structure of the Directorate. A new organigramme for DG III has also been issued (1.5.1993). In line with the objectives of the revision, Directorate-General XIII is now entitled "Telecommunications, Information Market and Exploitation of Research" while DG III becomes "Industry". Important effects of the reorganization include the transfer of the activities previously undertaken by DG XIII/A, hence responsibility for the ESPRIT programme, to DG III/F. In addition, actions previously undertaken in the field of standardization under DG XIII/C, as well as those related to European telematic networks and systems (previously DG XIII/F) are transferred to DG III/B. The new DG XIII is composed of the Office of the Director-General (Director-General, M. Carpentier; Deputy Director-General, V. Parajon Collada), seven support Units (1-7) reporting directly to the Director-General, plus five Directorates (A-E) as follows: Directorate A (Director, M. Hardy). Telecommunications and postal services: - A-1. Regulatory aspects of network access, satellite communications, mobile communications, and frequencies; - A-2. Telecommunications market; - A-3. TransEuropean telecommunications networks; - A-4. Relations between telecommunications and audiovisual media; - A-5. Postal services. Regulatory aspects and specific measures; - A-7. Telecommunications and postal aspects of structural interventions. Directorate B (Director, R. Huber). Advanced communications technologies and services: - B-1. Programmes, preparation and monitoring; - B-2. Development of advanced networks and services for integrated broadband communications; - B-3. Advanced communications technologies and digital (notably image) transmission; - B-4. Mobile communications; - B-5. Engineering of services; - B-6. Security of telecommunications and information services. Directorate C (Director, M. Richonnier). Technological developments relating to telematics applications (networks and services): - C-1. Programmes, preparation and monitoring; - C-2. Telematics networks and services applied to administrations, RTD and urban and rural areas; - C-3. Telematics networks and services applied to flexible distance learning; - C-4. Telematics networks and services applied to health; - C-5. Telematics networks and services applied to integration of the disabled and elderly; - C-6. Telematics networks and services applied to transport. Directorate D (Director, A. Strub). RTD, Dissemination and exploitation of research and technological development results, technology transfer and innovation: - D-1. Strategic aspects of innovation and exploitation of RTD, and intellectual property; - D-2. Dissemination of scientific and technical knowledge; - D-3. Evaluation and exploitation of Community RTD results; - D-4. Innovation and technology transfer. Directorate E (Director, F. De Bruine). Information industry and market and language processing: - E-1. Information services market policy; - E-2. Demonstrations and pilot projects; - E-3. Library networks and services; - E-4. Language processing and applications; - E-5. Basic studies in linguistics. The revised organigramme for the Directorate-General for Industry, DG III (Directorates B and F), reflects the transfer of responsibilities mentioned above. The Directorates affected are: - DG III/B (Director, E. Vardakas). Regulatory policy and standardization, Telematic networks: - B-1. Technical legislation, general aspects and coordination of harmonization; - B-2. Standardization; - B-3. Quality and certification policy and conformity marking; - B-4.

High-performance computing and networking; - F-5. Peripheral systems, business systems and house automation; - F-6. Computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM). It should be noted that current offices and telephone numbers for the ESPRIT 3 programme, together with those for standardization and telematics networks, are not affected by the reorganization.
