CEN and CENELEC each have their own respective governance bodies (General Assembly, Administrative Board, Technical Board, Advisory Bodies and Technical Bodies).
The European Standardization Organizations have created a joint structure to facilitate cooperation on strategic matters of common interests: the CEN-CENELEC Presidential Committee.
The Presidential Committee
The CEN and CENELEC Presidential Committee (PC) is a governing body created jointly by CEN and CENELEC and mandated by the Administrative Boards of both organizations to manage and administer non-sector specific policies and joint actions in relation to matters of common interest.
The PC is composed of the two Presidents of CEN and CENELEC, the Presidents-Elect, the six Vice-Presidents and the Director General of CEN and CENELEC.
