The Environmental Helpdesk proposes three types of training to standard writers on how to address environmental issues during the development or revision of standards.
The online training 'Environmental aspects in standardization' provides knowledge and understanding of why and how to include environmental considerations in standards writing activities to Technical Committees delegates and other stakeholders with an interest in environment and standardization.
Courses in CCMC - Brussels
The Environmental Helpdesk regularly organizes courses in CCMC offices in Brussels on the inclusion of environmental aspects in standards.
The one-day interactive course helps standards writers to understand why it is necessary to consider these aspects while drafting products and services standards.
It provides ways and practical examples on how to use and tailor the various tools available to Technical Committees through case studies, best practices and sector-specific applications.
To benefit from the course, it is highly recommended to run the e-learning "Environmental aspects in Standardization" above.
Participation in the training is free of charge.
Planned courses for 2013
A one-day course was organised on 25 April, following the StandarDays held on 23-24 April.
A second course is planned for 9 October.
The trainings will take place in Brussels and only if there are sufficient participants enrolled.
If you are interested in participating in the training, please send your contact details to the CEN Environmental Helpdesk
. We will be in touch with you for dates and practical information.
The CEN/EHD can organise a one-day session tailored to the needs of a CEN Technical Committee. This Workshop offers an opportunity to evaluate the environmental performance of the standards that are developed by the TC.
