The summer holiday season is kicking off! With such interesting history and cities, and the lavishing Nature that Europe has to offer, tourism is economically important: it represents 2.3 million enterprises which employ an estimated 12.3 million persons, from which 21.5 % are employed in the services sector.
The European standardization system has been of course developing standards for the tourism sector, in order to enhance the quality of services and to ensure their safety. In CEN, we have one dedicated Technical Committee: CEN/TC 329 on Tourism services.

On behalf of CEN and CENELEC, we wish you a happy summer!
