The Administrative Board (CA) manages and administers CEN’s business by directing the work and coordinating the actions of all CEN bodies with the aim of executing the decisions taken by the General Assembly. It also takes in the name of the association all the steps it deems essential for the achievement of its corporate goals in its dealings with national, European or international authorities as well as any other persons or any other organizations.
The Administrative Board, which normally meets three times per year, comprises the CEN Officers (i.e. the President, three Vice-Presidents Policy, Technical & Finance) and nine ordinary Board members. All are appointed by the General Assembly. The CEN-CENELEC Director General acts as the secretary of the Board.
The Administrative Board, among others, is empowered by the General Assembly to manage the technical work by delegation to the Technical Board.
