More than 200.000 technical experts from industry, associations, public administrations, academia and societal organizations are involved in the CEN and CENELEC network.


CEN and CENELEC provide European platforms for the standardization of products, services, technologies, processes and systems across a wide range of sectors. A growing number of sectors are being addressed by both CEN and CENELEC jointly.  European standards help build the European internal market, removing barriers to trade and strengthening Europe's position in the global economy.
