USB Portable Storage Devices

The CCDB has established a Work Group to assist in creating an iTC (and hence a cPP) for USB Portable Storage Devices (the Work Group name is abbreviated to "CCDB USB cPP WG"). The Work Group comprises participants from 12 nations, at present: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, Sweden, Turkey, the UK, and the US.
