A harmonised standard is a European standard elaborated on the basis of a request from the European Commission to a recognized European Standards Organisation (CEN, CENELEC or ETSI) to develop a European standard that provides solutions for compliance with a legal provision. Manufacturers and other economic operators or conformity assessment bodies can use harmonised standards to demonstrate that products, services or processes comply with relevant EU legislation. Therefore, harmonised standards are also of importance for the fire safety and security industry. Those who want to learn more about standards could join the CEN CENELEC webinar ‘Harmonized European standards: Drafting standards compliant with EU legislation’. The webinar takes place on June 29th, 2021, 14:00 CET. Interested? You can register yourself here.
