The Ecma General Assembly has approved by letter ballot Ecma-404: THE JSON Data Interchange Formal
See http://www.ecma-international.org/publications/standards/Ecma-404.htm 

It provides the normative specification of the syntax of JSON Text used for data interchange.  Note that it does not define any semantics for such texts. There are many such possible semantics.   Actual data interchange requires agreement between a producer and consumer regarding the semantic interpretation of a JSON text.  This might, for example,  take the form of ad hoc agreement between a producer and consumer upon an application specific JSON "schema" or it might be the subject of other standards that defines a semantics for some particular use case of the Ecma-404 JSON syntax.
