Timely European Standards for a Green and Digital, Single and Global Market

The European standardisation system is a global success story. After the release of the European Standardisation Strategy in 2022, it became clear that the work of standardisation was growing in its role as an integral tool of the European Single Market.

​The unique public-private partnership between the EC, European standardisation organisations (ESOs) and industrial/societal stakeholders –and with the involvement of Member States, National Standards Bodies (NSB), National Committees (NC) and EFTA - has produced world-leading standards in support of EU policies and legislation that benefit European citizens, industry and the environment. But this partnership is also subject to change and continuous improvements, which have led to a joint understanding of the need to undertake a thorough assessment of partnership in order to prosper and progress. ​


This is why representatives of the EC, EFTA and the three European Standardisation Organisations – CEN, CENELEC and ETSI – decided to form a TF that could work together on short, medium and long term solutions: to address strategic and operational matters that enables the European standardisation system to deliver a green, digital and resilient Single Market. ​
