India is becoming a powerful economic global actor, but it is difficult to understand from an utsider point of
view what are the drivers and the main players of the Indian standardization system and quality infrastructure.
In this context, and seen the positive experience with the SESEC in China, a SESEI (Seconded European Standardization Expert in India) could assist to increase visibility of the European standardization and promote the use of European and international standards in India, as well as increase knowledge and awareness of Indian economic practices in Europe.
The European Commission, EFTA and the 3 ESOs joined forces to co-finance a European standardization expert to operate in India, starting in the second half of 2010 up to 2012 or 2013.
