Integration in Product Standards

Based on a mandate of the Commission CEN has established a horizontal working which is intended to advise technical committees and working groups on how to take into account aspects of design for all when preparing standards. The group should review standards and draft standards following a priority programme. The details of the working procedures are currently being developed. A representative of the Consumer Council has been nominated into this group. Unfortunately the progress is rather slow, the discussions with the Commission on financing have been dragging on for long.
