Open Letter: For a successful application of the European Cybersecurity Certification Framework

8 June 2018

Our European associations represent the technology, engineering and manufacturing sectors in the European Union. We provide industrial applications to a wide array of different industrial branches and across many industrial supply chains, in particular to the ICT sector. Cybersecurity is a top priority for our industries in the B2B and B2C markets. We already invest in the development and integration of cyber secure solutions into our industrial applications. It is of critical importance for our industry to provide our customers with safe, reliable and secure products, services and processes.


The Cybersecurity Act will have a great impact on our industry and could be instrumental to boost Europe’s global industrial competitiveness. We call on European decision-makers to consider carefully the broad impact of this Regulation on the whole European industry and to ensure that it serves as an instrument to the European industrial strategy.


Therefore, we are greatly concerned with the ongoing political discussions and urgently call upon the European Parliament and the Council to consider three key elements of Europe’s strongest industries.
