EU Parliament IMCO Committee hosts hearing on standards for 21st century

27 January 2017

The EU Parliament IMCO Committee, an acronym standing for Internal Market and Consumer Protection, held a public hearing on European Standards for the 21st Century. The hearing is to proceed a motion for a European Parliament Resolution, formally answering the European Commission Communication: European standards for the 21st century. 


This original Communication provided the framework for the Joint Initiative on Standardisation (JIS), in which Euralarm is involved.

The hearing consisted of two panels. Panel one focused on innovative, interconnected and interoperable standards for the future and panel two on how to make standards serve a modern inclusive society. Presentations from standardisation experts  as well as a video recording of the IMCO hearing are available on the European Parliament’s website.

Member of the European Parliament Marlene Mizzi is the IMCO rapporteur on European Standards for the 21st Century and presented a draft report including the text of the motion for a European Parliament Resolution, which is also available on the website of the European Parliament.
