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


Technical Board


CLC/BT Scope

The General Assembly has delegated the management of the technical standardization work to the Technical Board (BT).
As stipulated in the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations - Part 2, the latter is responsible for controlling the standards programme and promoting its speedy implementation by the CEN-CENELEC Management Centre (CCMC) as well as by the Technical Committees and other bodies. BT meets three times a year. The CENELEC President chairs the meetings, but if he is not available, a Vice President will stand in for him. This rule implies the mandatory presence of two CENELEC Officers. The participation of more CA members in BT should be avoided.
The CEN-CENELEC Management Centre (CCMC) holds the BT secretariat.
BT members are Permanent Delegates – one representative of each National Electrotechnical Committee, appointed on a long-term/permanent basis – who have decision rights, and observers of identified cooperating partners, CEN, ETSI, IEC, the European Commission and EFTA.
