Network for Swedish interests
Involvement in the standardization process is a way to influence international development in the field of interest. It can also provide access to advance information and the chance to exchange insights and experience, even if your organization is active only in Sweden. SIS works actively with our clients to ensure that Swedish companies and organizations are able to influence new international standards. We are able to do this as part of the network that develops the CEN European standards and ISO global standards.
CEN, the European Committee for Standardization, develops European standards that facilitate the exchange of goods and services within the EU and EFTA. The national members, of which SIS is one, must confirm European standards as national standards. This is why national standards that are also European standards look the same in all the European member countries, both in terms of ID codes and technical content.
