Management Centre - role

The close collaboration between CEN and CENELEC was consolidated by the creation of a common
CEN-CENELEC Management Centre (CCMC)
at the beginning of 2010, thus replacing the CENELEC Central Secretariat and the CEN Management Centre.

The CEN-CENELEC Management Centre (CCMC), located in Brussels, is in charge of the daily operations, coordination and promotion of all CEN and CENELEC activities. CCMC acts as a permanent office responsible for handling the tasks assigned by both CEN and CENELEC, their General Assemblies, their Administrative Boards and their Technical Boards, and is responsible for the correspondence and liaison with the services of the European Commission and the EFTA Secretariat..

The CEN-CENELEC Management Centre is managed by the Director General, Mrs Elena Santiago Cid.
