ISO (International Organisation for Standardization) is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 164 national standards bodies.
Through its members, it brings together experts to share knowledge and develop voluntary, consensus-based, market relevant International Standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges.
CEN, the European Committee for Standardization, is an association that brings together the National Standardization Bodies of 34 European countries.
CEN is one of three European Standardization Organizations (together with CENELEC and ETSI) that have been officially recognized by the European Union and by the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) as being responsible for developing and defining voluntary standards at European level.
CEN provides a platform for the development of European Standards and other technical documents in relation to various kinds of products, materials, services and processes.
