International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies

 

European Mandates

Mandates, also called standardization requests are the mechanism by which the European Commission (EC)and the EFTA Secretariat request the European Standards Organizations (ESOs) to develop and adopt European standards in support of European policies and legislation. This mechanism evolves through several steps:

  • A provisional draft mandate is received at CENELEC for possible comments by a due deadline
  • A draft mandate, possibly including the proposed modifications, is sent to the Committee on Standards established under Regulation 1025/2012 on European Standardisation, ensuring a wide consultation of sector authorities at national level
  • A mandate is then sent for acceptance to CENELEC, where a Programme Manager coordinates with the relevant Technical Body and ensures feedback to the Technical Board(s)
  • The Technical Board Members are invited (not) to accept the given mandate, with or without restrictions, based on the Technical Body and CENELEC feedback
  • Once the Technical Board has taken its decision, CENELEC informs the EC accordingly.

In case of acceptance of the mandate, the Technical Body is entrusted with the task of starting expected standardization work within CENELEC.

CENELEC Technical Board has accepted the following mandates:
