European Electricity Harmonisation and Electrotechnical Standards


European electricity harmonisation and electrotechnical standards, based on a consensus, which reflects the economic and social interests of 33 CENELEC Member countries channelled through their National Electrotechnical Committees (NCs). Most standards are initiated by industry. Other standardization projects can come from consumers, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) or associations, or even European legislators. Besides European Standards, CENELEC produces other reference documents, which can be developed quickly and easily: Technical Specifications, Technical Reports and Workshop Agreements. CENELEC is a Non Profit International Association, forming the officially recognised European Standards Organisations (ESOs) together with CEN, the European Committee for Standardization and ETSI, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute. CENELEC acts as a platform for experts to develop European Standards (ENs), which facilitate world trade by removing barriers to trade, enhancing economic growth and leading to new markets.CENELEC concentrates most of its work on 2 major deliverables: The European Standard (EN) and the Harmonization Document (HD). These two documents are referred to commonly as "standards" and must be implemented in all CENELEC member countries, who must also withdraw any conflicting standard.
