The SIGNIS International Group integrates communication entities whose activities are developed in several countries and constitutes a network structure, different from those constituted by the national members of SIGNIS that meet in 6 regional groups: North America, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania.
This structure is a legacy of the Unda International Group, whose activities began in 1955, as well as the OCIC one.
