CEN CENELEC and ETUC (European Trade Union Confederation) will be organising a webinar addressing the ETUC STANDardisation project – Understanding the technical cooperation between European & international standardization.

The ETUC STANDardisation project facilitates the participation of Trade Unions in both European and international standards development activities. On both levels, there is often parallel standardization work addressing similar issues. The convergence between European and international standards is facilitated by the ongoing technical cooperation between CEN & ISO: the Vienna Agreement.

This webinar will look at how the technical agreement is carried out in practise. More information is can be found on the ETUC website.

Should you be interested in following the webinar, please confirm your participation by sending an email to ETUC before 2 October (COB)

Standards for products and services are at the heart of success of the fire safety industry. Euralarm’ members need a fast and flexible standards-setting system because it is not only the best way to serve the interests of customers, the industry and society but also is a basic requirement for a safe and secure society. Our standardisation system helps us to continue to deliver the highest levels of safety and security to citizens. However, for the competitiveness of the electronic fire safety industry, the impact of the CPR on standardisation has according to our members unfortunately not met our expectations. This industry as well as many others depend on standardised product performance requirements and standardised behaviour, which is at odds with the interpretation of the CPR following the European Court of Justice judgement on the James Elliot case. Read the full story here.
