Joint Call to CEN and CENELEC to place industry at the core of European standardisation governance

The undersigning industry organisations are stakeholders of European standardisation.  Most of them have signed co-operation agreements with CEN and/or CENELEC. 

Last year, CEN and CENELEC changed their internal regulations after a decision process in which many of their “recognised stakeholders” from the industry would have preferred a more active involvement than has been the case. In our view such changes could significantly impact the future governance of both CEN and CENELEC. 

Therefore, we call on CEN and CENELEC to confirm that they are fully available to contribute to an in-depth discussion on ways that could make their governance structure more responsive to industry needs. 

We believe that it would be highly desirable to make the whole standardisation process and structure more effective and relevant to our markets and society at large.
