CEN (European Committee for Standardization) and CENELEC (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization) have a brand new website.

The two European standardization organisations said they are “happy to provide all stakeholders interested in European standardization with an improved digital presence – faster, more dynamic and user friendly.”

The result of months of hard work and dedication, the new joint website is available at The website aims to offer an enhanced user experience. It features a refreshed look, improved navigation and a handful of features which will make the overall experience more impactful on either desktop, mobile or tablet.

Elena Santiago Cid, CEN and CENELEC’s Director General, said, “The new website testifies to our ongoing commitment to making our work accessible, transparent and open to the future. We will be constantly updating the content to enhance the digital presence of CEN and CENELEC and increase our online interaction with our stakeholders and experts. I sincerely hope that you enjoy the new website and all that it has to offer.”

Among the relevant features of the website, CEN and CENELEC have worked on centralising and providing targeted information to stakeholders and the general public on sectors, news, and events. Furthermore, a dedicated expert area has been introduced, providing a central access to all CEN and CENELEC support tools and applications.

The renewal of CEN and CENELEC’s online presence is part of a wider effort that looks at the evolution and adaptation the European Standardization System to make it fit for the future. As part of this reflection, CEN and CENELEC recently approved their Strategy 2030, a joint framework that will guide their activities in the next ten years.
