We want to make it as easy as possible for interested parties to access information about standards and contribute to our standardization activities. A wide range of stakeholders are participating in our activities, via the national members of CEN and CENELEC in 33 countries, and at European level – as partner and liaison organizations. Through our members and stakeholders, we receive the views of business and industry (including SMEs). We also welcome input from societal stakeholders such as consumer organizations, environmental groups and trade unions, as well as public bodies, researchers, academia and other interested parties. All of the standards adopted by CEN and CENELEC are developed by experts nominated by our members, affiliates, partner and liaison organizations, who contribute to the work of more than 400 technical bodies at European level. By combining the knowledge and ideas from all our stakeholders, we produce European Standards that meet market needs, whilst also reflecting the latest ‘state of the art’ in terms of technical and scientific knowledge. For each specific sector, we provide information about which technical bodies are responsible for standardization activities in that sector, and how many standardization requests (Mandates) from the European Commission have been accepted by CEN and CENELEC. As our activities are closely aligned with the priorities of the EU and EFTA, we also indicate the most relevant elements of ‘The annual Union work programme for European standardisation for 2015’ (COM(2014) 500). While the Work Programme reveals the variety of CEN and CENELEC’s activities, it is simply not possible to include full details of every single work item. Therefore, we encourage you to explore our websites (www.cen.eu, www.cenelec.eu and www.cencenelec.eu) for more detailed and up-todate information about our current and planned activities. The national members of CEN and CENELEC are excellent sources of information and they can also provide good advice on how to get involved in standardization. You will find a list of our members in the back of this publication. In case you are not already in contact with the CEN and CENELEC member(s) in your country, I invite you to get in touch! Elena SANTIAGO CID Director General of CEN and CENELEC CEN and CENELEC Work Programme 2015 Introduction The majority of European Standards produced by CEN and CENELEC are developed to address specific needs that have been identified by business and other potential users. Around onethird of our standards are prepared in response to requests from the European Commission, with the aim of supporting the implementation of European policies and legislation. Many of these standards enable businesses to ensure that their products or services comply with essential requirements laid down in EU Directives. This publication provides an overview of the most important standardization activities that CEN and CENELEC will be supporting in 2015. We hope that the Work Programme will be a valuable tool for all stakeholders who are interested and may wish to get involved in the process of developing and revising standards. 1 2 Accessibility Accessibility refers to the extent to which products, systems, services, environments, buildings or facilities can be accessed and used by as many people as possible, including people with disabilities and older people. European Standards are powerful tools to promote accessibility, as they can provide a framework of requirements and specifications for the production and delivery of accessible products and services. CEN and CENELEC are committed to making sure that accessibility is integrated into European Standards, for example by applying a ‘Design for All’ approach during the development of standards. Standards that take into account the diverse needs and abilities of the whole population will support the development of products and services that are accessible for the widest possible range of users. Technical bodies responsible: CEN-CENELEC JWG 5 - Design for All CEN-CENELEC JWG 6 - Accessibility in the built environment CEN-CENELEC-ETSI JWG - ‘eAccessibility’ Standards published by CEN & CENELEC: 1 European Standards (EN/HD) 4 other deliverables (TS/TR/CWA) Standardization requests from EC/EFTA: M/473 - Design for All M/420 - Accessibility in the built environment Elements of EU Work Programme 2015: 3.2.24. Accessibility Further information: www.cencenelec.eu/go/accessibility CEN and CENELEC cooperate with the international standardization organizations (ISO and IEC) to ensure that accessibility is addressed during the drafting of new standards and the revision of existing standards. They contributed to developing and revising the 2014 edition of ISO/IEC Guide 71 ‘Guidelines for addressing accessibility in standards’, which has also been published at European level as CEN-CENELEC Guide 6. CEN and CENELEC Work Programme 2015 Accessibility © Photographee.eu The European Disability Strategy 2010-2020 states that legislative and other instruments, including standardization, should be used to ensure the accessibility of goods and services. The forthcoming European Accessibility Act should support the continued expansion of the market for accessible goods and services, especially in relation to public procurement (i.e. the purchasing of goods and services by public authorities) throughout Europe. 3 Design for All The concept of accessible, universal or barrier-free design (also known as ‘Design for All’) relates to the objective of ensuring that a product, building or service can be used by as many people as possible. This may involve designing products or services that are readily usable by most users (without any modification), making products that can be adapted to different users, including older people and people with disabilities, or having standardized interfaces that are compatible with ‘assistive technologies’. The CEN-CENELEC Joint Working Group ‘Design for All’ (CEN-CLC JWG 5) is responsible for coordinating efforts to ensure that accessibility is addressed during the development of standards for products and services (in accordance with EC standardization request M/473). This work is being developed with the participation of interested stakeholders, including European and national organizations representing people with disabilities and older people. In 2015, CEN and CENELEC will continue work on developing a standard that provides clear guidance on how to address accessibility by implementing a ‘Design for All’ approach in the design, development, production and provision of goods and services. This standard, which is due to be published in 2017, will support the implementation of the European Disability Strategy 2010-2020 and the anticipated European Accessibility Act, as well as the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. CEN and CENELEC will also adopt and implement a joint strategy with the aim of ensuring that accessibility is addressed during the development and revision of standards for products and services. This strategy will involve the identification and targeting of standardization activities where it is necessary to address accessibility, based on CEN-CENELEC Guide 6 ‘Guidelines for addressing accessibility in standards’. Tailored support (such as advice and training) will be made available to the relevant Technical Bodies. Accessibility OTHER STANDARDS AND ACTIVITIES TO BE DEVELOPED IN 2015 4 Accessibility in the built environment CEN and CENELEC hope to obtain financial support from the European Commission in order to develop a European Standard setting out accessibility requirements for public procurement in the built environment (in the framework of EC standardization request M/420). This work would be coordinated by the CEN-CENELEC Joint Working Group ‘Accessibility in the Built Environment’ (JWG 6). Air and space - aerospace and ae ment and product assurance, s ments relating to space systems Air and Space In the Air and Space sector, CEN and CENELEC are developing and publishing standards in relation to Aerospace, Air traffic management, and the Space industry. Standards and technical specifications for the aerospace industry are being developed by the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe – Standardization (ASD-STAN), which cooperates closely with CEN. ASD-STAN is responsible for the technical content of standards defining products, materials, test methods and procedures for the construction, maintenance and use of aircraft and space vehicles. Specifications developed by ASD-STAN may be submitted to CEN for adoption as European Standards. In the area of Air Traffic Management (ATM), CEN develops standards to ensure the interoperability of the European Air Traffic Management Network (EATMN) in the context of the Single European Sky (SES). Standardization work in this area is managed by the CEN Technical Committee ‘Air Traffic Management’ (CEN/TC 377) in the framework of a formal request from the European Commission (EC M/390).
