Internal Market: Joint industry statement – Feedback on the Standardisation Strategy

Published: 6 April 2022

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Compliance, Standards & Enforcement

We welcome the European Commission’s initiative for a European standardisation strategy that aims to support the digital transformation and the green transition. Standards are at the core of the EU Single Market and the New Legislative Framework for products, and key to the EU´s economic integration that is imperative in today’s geopolitical context more than ever. 

We support the ambition to take a more proactive approach towards strategy setting for standards. The proposed actions should consolidate the strengths of the existing system and consequently preserve the inclusive and successful market-driven nature of the standardisation processes. Based on the observations of industry leaders and experts active in standardisation, we urge policy makers to consider the following elements when implementing the strategy and remain available for a constructive dialogue on how the EU can lead in standardisation.
