Mining and Metals  

The standards within the sector of mining and metals address the definition, classification, testing, analysis and technical delivery requirements of the products of the metal industry.

In the past, these standardization activities were performed by the 12 Technical Committees (TCs) of the European Committee for Iron and Steel Standardization (ECISS), and coordinated by its Coordinating Commission (COCOR). In 2018, under the approval of the CEN Technical Board, all ECISS TCs were integrated into one technical body (CEN/TC 459), whose focus will be on the definition, classification, testing, chemical analysis and technical delivery requirements of the products of the iron and steel industry.
