In the ICT sector, it is especially important that products, systems and services are mutually compatible and interoperable, so that information can be shared, and people can communicate with each other using different devices. Relevant standards help to ensure that products, such as computer peripherals and other electronic devices made by different companies can work together seamlessly. European Standards are key contributors to the EU Digital Single Market, contributing to an inclusive digital society. They represent one of the most critical issues for businesses approaching the global market. CEN is engaged in multiple technical sectors, such as Smart Grids, Cybersecurity, ICT skills, Advanced Manufacturing, and Distributed Ledger Technologies. In this context, CEN cooperates extensively with ISO to develop standards that can be applied worldwide.
