Activities:
It is CEN’s task to support the voluntary technical harmonization together with organizations in Europe and all over the world. Harmonization reduces trade barriers, increases security, enhances the interoperability of products, systems and services, and makes understanding in technical areas easier. In Europe, CEN co-operates with the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).
