Striving to promote the basic well-being of individuals and the European society is one of the prime missions of CENELEC. Initially and historically, the activities were mainly oriented to the removal of trade barriers for the free circulation of goods in the European market through ensuring a single national standard in all of the countries covered by its membership.

Safety and interoperability have always been the focal point but the needs of our modern society stretch far beyond these and aspects such as accessibility, sustainability and the environment play a key role in our activities.
