Yes, you are correct. ECIS is not part of the European Commission. The ECIS website offers the following description:

ECIS is an international non-profit association founded in 1989 that endeavors to promote a favorable environment for interoperable ICT solutions. It has actively represented its members regarding issues related to interoperability and competition before European, international, and national fora, including the EU institutions and WIPO.

Sorry for the confusion. We are happy to print this correction.
