CWA download area

The CEN and CENELEC Boards agreed at their meeting of 29 March 2017 (CEN/CA Decision 29/2017 and CENELEC/CA Decision 146/14) that CWAs in the R&D domain and in the ICT domain be made publicly available on the CEN and CENELEC websites if a pre-payment is made as compensation for the possible loss of revenue to the CEN and CENELEC members.

The CWAs in the ICT domain that are made available under pre-paid download conditions, are available from the CEN and CENELEC website.


Because of their broader relevance, three CWAs (one CWA addressing the ‘Journalism Trust Initiative’ and Two CWAs addressing Standards Essential Patents in IoT and hence of interest to the R&I community) are also made available for download here below:

CWA 17431:2019 Principles and guidance for licensing Standard Essential Patents in 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), including the Industrial Internet
CWA 95000:2019 Core Principles and Approaches for Licensing of Standard Essential Patents

CWA 17493:2019

(English version)
Journalism Trust Initiative 

CWA 17493:2019

(French version)
Initiative pour la fiabilité de l'informatique et les bonnes pratiques journalistiques

CWAs resulting from an EU-funded project (or more generally a Europe-wide project with public co-funding) are made available for download under this arrangement from this page:
