CEN and CENELEC Partners

The uniqueness of the European Standardization System is its openness and inclusivity, and CEN and CENELEC community is the key driver to this machine.

CEN and CENELEC and their Members are fully committed to encouraging and supporting all sectors of society and industry to participate in our European standardization work, and to cooperating with key organizations for the development of sound partnerships with those that can contribute to the fulfilment of the scope and mission of both CEN and CENELEC.

For these partnerships, CEN and CENELEC consider the complementary roles that they can play at either National and/or European level.


At European level, CEN and CENELEC have built strong partnerships with a wide range of key European organizations, associations and other recognized stakeholders having an interest in European Standardization, willing to cooperate at overall corporate and technical level with CEN and/or CENELEC, and representing particular sectors of industry, as well as consumers, environmentalists, workers and other societal interests.


There are six categories of Partners within CEN and CENELEC, all covered in CEN-CENELEC Guide 25 on 'The concept of Cooperation with European Organizations and other stakeholders'.
