The event will take place in Brussels at the CEN-CENELEC Management Centre. Participation is free of charge but online registration to the CEN-CENELEC workshop is compulsory.
he one-day workshop includes:
- a discussion on lessons learnt from past non-citations of harmonized standards in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU);
- an informative presentation on recent updates within the construction sector related to mandates and standards;
- the provision of guidance to the technical experts for drafting of Harmonized European Standards (hENs) in support of CPR (e.g. classes and thresholds and dangerous substances).
Action 5 of the ‘Joint Initiative on Standardisation’ (JIS) under the Single Market Strategy, in which Euralarm is involved, aims at aiding the implementation of the Construction Products Regulation - CPR (EU) 305/2011 - through standards. One of the focal points under this JIS action concerns the provision of guidance to standardisers working within the construction sector to ensure a common understanding on the role of harmonised standards in the CPR context.
