The document lists the actions taken by the Commission in standardisation: aiming to promote innovation, to increase quality, safety, security and sustainability of goods and services, to enable job creation and growth, to support global value chains and to prevent costly fragmentation in the Single Market. All those objectives are in line with Euralarm own views on the role of standardisation.
Indeed, Euralarm is deeply involved in the development of a better European standardisation system, notably through the EU Institutions and Industry's Joint Initiative on standardisation.
The Report provides the state of play of the Joint Initiative on standardisation and the measures taken to enhance inclusiveness of the European standardisation system. Furthermore, the paper includes the action plan agreed between the Commission and the European Standardisation Organisations for the timely publication of the references of the harmonised standards in the official journal of the EU.
The Report will serve as a basis for the inter-institutional dialogue with the European Parliament, the Council, the Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions in spring.
