The European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) concentrates most of its efforts on one major deliverable: the European Standard (EN). This document shall be given the status of national standard in all CEN member countries, who must also withdraw any conflicting national standards.
Besides European Standards, CEN produces other deliverables with specific characteristics and objectives. They are the Technical Specifications (TS), Technical Reports (TR), Guides and Workshop Agreements (CWA).
These various products differ in their methods of development, approval processes and implementation, offering flexible means to meet different market needs for requirements and information.
More information on our products can be found using the links in the left margin, as well as in the Guidance Document for CEN deliverables.
