New eLearning tool on standardization
Build your expertise, increase your knowledge and influence!
Standards have a broad impact on society and contribute to making our everyday lives safer. In Europe, regulators have turned to standards to support the implementation of laws and policies, including in areas of public interest. This makes it even more important for civil society to engage and participate in standardization.
Three organisations have a special role in conveying the needs of civil society in the development of standards in Europe and internationally:
- ANEC – the European consumer voice in standardisation
- ECOS – The European Environmental Citizens’ Organisation in Standardisation
- ETUC – The European Trade Union Confederation
ANEC, ECOS and ETUC have joined with CEN-CENELEC to develop a free, interactive eLearning course that gives clear and straightforward information about standards and the standardization process in Europe, as well as at the national and international levels.
The course contains several modules to help users learn about standards, their development and the key role they play in protecting consumers, workers and the environment. It further demonstrates the importance for civil society to engage in standardization in order to improve, strengthen and add legitimacy to the European Standardization System.
If you want to discover the world of standards, this training is for you! Follow our course and find out why standards are relevant to you, and how you can participate in developing standards that benefit all!
