About the European Standards Organizations
CEN, CENELEC, and ETSI are officially recognised as European Standards Organizations by the European Union.
CEN (European Committee for Standardization) and CENELEC (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization) are responsible for developing and defining standards that set out specifications and procedures in relation to a wide range of products and services. The members of CEN and CENELEC are the National Standards Bodies and National Electrotechnical Committees of 33 European countries including all of the EU member states plus 3 EFTA countries (Iceland, Norway, and Switzerland) and 3 EU candidate countries (Croatia, Turkey, and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia). European Standards (ENs) and other technical documents published by CEN and CENELEC are accepted and recognised in all of these countries. For more information, please see: www.cencenelec.eu
ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, aeronautical, broadcast, and internet technologies. ETSI is an independent, not-for-profit association whose more than 700 member companies and organizations, drawn from 62 countries across 5 continents worldwide, determine its work program and participate directly in its work.
