CEN-CENELEC StandarDays in Brussels

The main goal of StandarDays is to give a clear and structured overview of the European Standardization System, of the CEN and CENELEC products and processes, as well as the benefits of involvement to potential stakeholders.

StandarDays is a two-day information session consisting of an introductory plenary meeting, which explains the different aspects and tasks of CEN and CENELEC (day 1) and interactive, in-depth workshops (day 2). This structure gives participants the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the overall European Standardization System (day 1) and then take advantage of the CEN and CENELEC expertise to obtain further clarification and explanations (day 2).

StandarDays are aimed at all actors interested in the European standardization system: industry, consumers, administrations and government, European institutions, research centres, national standards institutes, academia etc.

The last StandarDays took place on 25 & 26 March 2014, at the CEN-CENELEC Meeting Centre in Brussels.

Presentations included,  among others, an introduction to standardisation by Isabel Quintana Soria, Director, Human Resources & Quality; ‘Developing a European Standard -The process’ by Alexandre della Faille de Leverghem, Programme Manager, Sustainability & Services, Standards; ‘Standardization: a support tool to research projects under Horizon 2020’ by Andreea Gulacsi, Unit Manager, Research Integration, Innovation.

On 26th March, several workshops were organised, including one on the Product certification in the single market & the Keymark held by Hoang Liauw, Manager Conformity Assessment at CEN.
