Discover how European standards can contribute to the success of your research and innovation activities, by facilitating market uptake, linking you up with new partners, helping you secure funding, and giving you access to essential industry and market information. 

Get started with European standards

Working with a European standardization organization 

There are four different ways you can work with a national standardization organization: 

#1 Screen existing standards

By screening existing standards on national, European, and international level, you will be able to access leading knowledge and resources on the topic you are working on. This includes European product standards across various industries.

#2 Join an existing

standardization community

Joining a standardization community allows you to exchange ideas and perspectives on ongoing work, and access relevant information that will inform and support your entrance into the market. 

#3 Revise an existing European

Standard or develop a new one

If you have identified a need to revise an existing standard or to develop a new one, you will need to follow the process set by European standards organizations CEN or CENELEC.

#4 Fast track to new standardisation

Developing a new standard involves creating a CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreement (CWA), which is a specific document designed for R&I projects and that forms the basis for new standards. Drafting time is about 6-12 months, after which your CWA could be further developed into a European standard or integrated into an existing one.
