Overview

The American National Standards Institute, in conjunction with the European Standards Organizations (ESOs), organized a conference to foster a networking and dialogue on the use of standards and compliance programs in such critical areas as e-mobility/electric vehicles, energy, and security.

During this conference, industry, and government experts from the United States and the European Union:

  • Offered an overview of the EU standardization system for the benefit of U.S. attendees
  • Addressed e-mobility/electric vehicles as a priority area of focus from both the political and business perspectives
  • Described key areas of focus in the energy sector for both U.S. and EU stakeholders, including smart grid, intelligent transport systems, and energy management
  • Discussed the importance of U.S.-EU cooperation on standards for security, including issues surrounding cargo and containers, aviation, and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE) agents
Chamber of Commerce The conference was hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and was further supported by World Standards Week 2011 sponsors.

Participants

Participants included stakeholders from the private and public sectors in both the U.S. and Europe, including representatives of industry, government, standards developing organizations, conformity assessment bodies, and the scientific and technical communities and other affected groups which underpin transatlantic trade.
