In 2020, we will continue the organisation of the "Webinars for standard drafters" of interest of all persons drafting CEN & CENELEC standards. These webinars aim primarily Technical Body Secretaries and TC Working Group convenors.
Through these webinars we will achieve a common understanding of the drafting rules and the related procedures. This is also an ideal opportunity for CCMC editors to better understand TCs' expectations and strengthen working relationships with Technical Bodies.
