CEN and CENELEC Industry Advisory Forum (IAF) ready to kick-start 

The CEN and CENELEC decided in 2017 to have a more direct dialogue with industry and to establish an Industry Advisory Forum (IAF) with an advisory role. The aim of IAF is to provide a platform for dialogue on standardization with the industry: it will identify standardization-relevant priority topics for industry on which CEN and CENELEC can further act. 

After a careful selection process based on a set of criteria defined to ensure balanced and due representation, the 16 Members of the IAF were appointed amongst a pool of 36 nominees proposed by the CEN and CENELEC Members. The selection was also based on the experts’ particular experience and knowledge in relevant areas, such as electrical and industrial power grid, construction industry, steel, digital industries, automotive industry, as well as civil aviation security. The first meeting of the IAF will take place on 16 October, under the leadership of the CEN and CENELEC Vice Presidents Policy.
