DITSAG, a new advisory Group to coordinate CEN and CENELEC’s Digital Strategy 

Newly-established CEN-CENELEC Digital and Information Technology Strategy Advisory Group (DITSAG) will deliver coordinated advice with a comprehensive approach on all aspects related to the implementation of the CEN-CENELEC Digital Transformation Strategy, including all IT projects.

The first meeting of the DITSAG, which took place on 9th October 2019 and was chaired by CEN VP Technical, Mr Ruggero Lensi, was a success. 24 participants, including representatives from ISO and IEC, engaged actively in discussions.

Thanks to a large mix of competences among the Members of the DITSAG, ranging from CEOs, IT Executives to Standard & Processes Executives, the discussion was very active and fruitful. The meeting also enabled to draw conclusions and preliminary follow-up action, which will be brought forward in the coming months. DITSAG Members also emphasised that a more structured cooperation with ISO and IEC is needed on digital matters, in order to cross-feed each other’s projects. To benefit from the lessons learnt from each organizations, it is essential to have a full understanding of the existing initiatives at international and European levels. Another priority consists of easing the flow of information inside and outside the DITSAG Group, especially across CEN-CENELEC Members and stakeholders.
