Web conference service 

You are a Technical Body (TC, SC, WG, Workshops), a management or a technical group with CEN or CENELEC secretariat and wish to organize Virtual Meetings.

CEN and CENELEC offer you a free access to web conferencing facilities.

The ZOOM account that you will receive is a personal account which is not limited in time (apart from the account disabling criteria as specified below) , you will therefore be able to organize CEN or CENELEC meetings without introducing a request to the CEN-CENELEC Management Center (CCMC).

The use of the web-conferencing service is free of charge and includes the use of VOIP (Voice over IP) facilities available for most of the European countries.


People/roles eligible to get a CEN-CENELEC Web Conferencing account :

As of 1 April 2020, eligible roles to get a CEN-CENELEC Web Conferencing account will be as follows:

  • Active Secretaries, Convenors, and their Assistant and Acting Secretaries + Support Teams (TC, SC, WG level)
  • Active Chairpersons and their support teams

Notes :

  • Web conferencing accounts can only be obtained for committees and working groups administered by CEN and CENELEC.

How does it work in practice?

Web Conferencing account creation :
