  3. 3. Introduction Every day millions of businesses are applying and using European Standards because they are valuable tools that can help to ensure the quality and safety of products and services, achieve compatibility between different products and components, access markets and sell to customers worldwide, satisfy customers’ expectations and requirements, reduce costs, eliminate waste and improve efficiency. Most European Standards are developed in response to specific needs that have been identified by business, industry and other potential users of standards. About 30% of European Standards reply to European Policy initiatives upon requests from the European Commission. These harmonized standards provide presumption of conformity with essential requirements that have been set out in European legislation. While businesses, organizations and consumers can enjoy a wide range of benefits by using European standards and applying them correctly, there are several reasons why many also choose to actively participate in the development of standards by getting involved in standardization. You can help to shape the content of new standards that will affect your industry and/or interests, while they are being prepared. In this Work Programme, we provide you with an overview of the standardization activities planned for 2014 in the different fields and sectors that CEN and CENELEC are dealing with. European standardization activities support the dissemination of knowledge about new technologies and innovations, and can help to bridge the gap between research, innovation and the market. In particular, CEN and CENELEC are identifying ways in which European Standards can contribute to a more efficient use of energy and other resources, reduce waste and minimize negative impacts on the environment. I hope that it provides you with insight into our activities planned for 2014. You can find further details and a comprehensive overview on our standardization work on the CEN-CENELEC (www.cencenelec.eu), CEN (www.cen.eu) and CENELEC (www.cenelec.eu) websites, where regular updates are provided. We are constantly looking for ways to reply to emerging needs and to evolve with the changing nature of business in different domains. The main route for businesses and other stakeholders to get involved in standardization is via our Members: the National Standardization Bodies and National Electrotechnical Committees in 33 countries. You will find a complete list of all CEN and CENELEC members at the end of this publication. I wish you interesting reading, and look forward to your active participation in standardization in 2014 and beyond. Elena SANTIAGO CID Director General of CEN and CENELEC CEN and CENELEC Work Programme 2014 Introduction The standardization activities of CEN and CENELEC cover products, processes and services across a wide range of traditional sectors like air and space, construction and civil engineering, chemicals, consumer products, household goods and electrical appliances, defence, security and privacy, electrotechnology including electrical engineering, automation and electronics, food and feed, healthcare, machinery, materials, nanotechnologies, pressure equipment, transport, etc. CEN and CENELEC also provide a platform for developing standardization activities in emerging fields such as ‘smart’ technologies, e-Health, e-Education encompassing ICT skills and e-Learning, Intelligent Transport Systems, etc. Our standards are also responding to major societal challenges and having a direct impact on the quality of life, such as in relation to accessibility and assisted living, during a time when ageing is one of the greatest social and economic challenges facing our societies. 1

  5. 5. Accessibility Accessibility refers to the extent to which products, systems, services, environments, buildings or facilities can be accessed and used by as many people as possible, including people with disabilities and older people. CEN and CENELEC are committed to making sure that European Standards take accessibility into account, for example by addressing the principle of accessibility and applying a ‘Design for All’ approach during the development of standards. CEN and CENELEC cooperate with the international standardization organizations (ISO and IEC) to ensure that accessibility is addressed during the drafting of new standards and the revision of existing standards. They are actively contributing to the ongoing revision of ISO/IEC Guide 71 ‘Guidelines for addressing accessibility in standards’. The current version of this guide was published in 2001, and has also been adopted at European level (as CEN-CENELEC Guide 6). CEN and CENELEC will: • work with relevant stakeholders to ensure that the role of standardization is recognized and reflected in the framework of the ‘European Accessibility Act’; • liaise with the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing, in order to identify how standardization activities could contribute to meeting the needs of an ageing society and supporting the growth of the ‘silver economy’. While the concept of ‘accessibility’ has existed for several decades, it has become more of a priority for public policies in recent years. The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2006) highlights the importance of ensuring equal access to the physical environment, transportation, information and communications, and other facilities and services, so that persons with disabilities can live independently and participate fully in all aspects of life. Accessibility The European Disability Strategy 2010-2020 states that legislative and other instruments, including standardization, should be used to ensure the accessibility of goods and services. The forthcoming European Accessibility Act (to be proposed in 2014) should support the continued expansion of the market for accessible goods and services, especially in relation to public procurement (i.e. the purchasing of goods and services by public authorities) throughout Europe. CEN and CENELEC Work Programme 2014 3
  6. 6. Design for All The concept of accessible, universal or barrier-free design (also known as ‘Design for All’) relates to the objective of ensuring that a product, building or service can be used by as many people as possible. This may involve designing products or services that are readily usable by most users (without any modification), making products that can be adapted to different users, including older people and people with disabilities, or having standardized interfaces that are compatible with products used by persons with disabilities (i.e. ‘assistive technologies’). The CEN-CENELEC Joint Working Group ‘Design for All’ (CEN-CLC JWG 5) is responsible for coordinating efforts to ensure that accessibility is addressed during the development of standards for products and services (in accordance with EC Mandate M/473). CEN and CENELEC will start work on developing a new European Standard setting out how to implement a ‘Design for All’ approach in the design, development, production and provision of goods and services. Accessibility in the built environment Accessibility CEN and CENELEC have set up a Joint Working Group ‘Accessibility in the Built Environment’ (JWG 6), which is responsible for implementing standardization activities in this area. These include activities regarding accessibility requirements for public procurement in the built environment, in the framework of a request from the European Commission (EC mandate M/420). 4 CEN and CENELEC will start work on the development of a European Standard setting out functional accessibility requirements in relation to the built environment, which could be used as technical specifications or as criteria for awarding public contracts.
  7. 7. e-Accessibility Accessible Tourism e-Accessibility is about ensuring that people with disabilities and older people can have access to products and services that are based on or related to information and communication technologies (ICT). European standardization work in this area is coordinated by the CEN-CENELEC-ETSI Joint Working Group on e-Accessibility, which has been in charge of responding to the EC Mandate M/376 ‘European accessibility requirements for Public Procurement of products and services in the ICT domain’ (issued in 2005). As older people and people with disabilities or special needs together represent a large (and growing) percentage of Europe’s population, companies (including SMEs) and other organizations are becoming increasingly interested in finding ways to serve this expanding market. Providers of tourism services have a particular interest in reaching the widest possible range of potential customers. The idea of ‘accessible tourism’ also corresponds with the goal of ensuring equal opportunities for all in relation to all kinds of leisure activities. CEN and CENELEC, in partnership with ETSI, will: • publish a new European Standard ‘Accessibility requirements suitable for public procurement of ICT products and services in Europe’ (EN 301 549) together with Technical Reports providing related information and guidance; CEN will engage in dialogue with relevant stakeholders regarding the possibility of developing a set of guidelines on the ‘Universal Design of Tourism Services’, which would take into account the diverse needs of people with disabilities and others with specific access requirements. • finalize the development of an online toolkit to support the public procurement of accessible ICT-related products and services, which could be used by public authorities and also by manufacturers and providers throughout Europe; • liaise with the European Commission and other stakeholders to identify how standardization could contribute to achieving the objectives of the proposed EU Directive on the accessibility of public sector bodies’ websites (COM(2012) 721).

  8. 8. Air and Space Air and space - aerospace and aeronautics, ment and product assurance, safety and ments relating to space systems and activi Chemistry – petroleum products, paints, va soil improvers, explosives for civil use, pyro In the Air and Space sector, CEN and CENELEC are developing and publishing standards in relation to Aerospace, Air traffic management, and the Space industry. Aerospace Standards and technical specifications for the aerospace industry are being developed by the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe - Standardization (ASD-STAN), which cooperates closely with CEN. ASD-STAN is responsible for the technical content of standards defining products, materials, test methods and procedures for the construction, maintenance and use of aircraft and space vehicles including their propulsion units and equipment. It develops specifications for aerospace applications, mainly in the field of engineering materials and components, and submits them to CEN for adoption as European Standards. CEN will: • continue to cooperate with ASD-STAN in order to ensure the timely adoption of standards that are required by Europe’s Aerospace industry; • continue discussions with relevant stakeholders on the possibility of developing one or more standards in relation to ‘cabin air quality’ in passenger aircraft. Space The European Commission has asked CEN, Construction ETSI to develop European CENELEC and - structures, products, mat Standards space industry but also for theresistance, (mandate M/496 – fire issued in Septembergeotextiles, en 2011). Standardization work under this mandate buildings, etc. is being managed by a joint CEN-CENELEC Technical Committee ‘Space’ (CEN/CLC/TC 5), which is cooperating closely with the European Cooperation for Space Standardization (ECSS). The ECSS brings together the European Space Agency (ESA), several national space agencies and Eurospace (representing the European Space Industry). Consumer products - toys, gymnas playground equipment, textiles, furniture, etc. CEN and CENELEC will: Energy - gas and water supplies, power • publish a series of standards relating systems, fuels, energy management, smart to Space project management, dealing with aspects such as project planning and implementation, cost and schedule management, risk management, etc. (EC mandate M/496); Environment - water and air quality, wa • publish a series of standards on space biofuels, recovered fuels, etc.as engineering, dealing with aspects such testing, technical requirements, human factors engineering, etc. (EC mandate M/496); Air Traffic Management • – food analysis, with the Food coordinate their activities animal feeding st European Cooperation for Space In the area of Air Traffic Management (ATM), genetically modified and seek Standardization (ECSS) organisms, article CEN develops standards to ensure the to develop cooperation with other interoperability of the European Air food, etc. Air and Space Traffic Management Network (EATMN) in the context of the Single European Sky (SES).

One of the main reasons for the increasing level of interest in commercial applications of bio-based products is the fact that biomass is a renewable resource and therefore these products can contribute to a more efficient use of natural resources. In many cases, bio-based products can also offer unique properties with additional functionalities. Standards for bio-based products can help to increase market transparency by providing common reference methods in order to verify claims about these products (e.g. biodegradability, sustainability). The need for standards in this area has been highlighted by the European Commission in its recent Communications ‘Innovating for Sustainable Growth: A Bioeconomy for Europe’ (COM(2012) 60) and ‘A Stronger European Industry for Growth and Economic Recovery’ (COM(2012) 582). CEN is developing European Standards and other deliverables covering horizontal aspects of bio-based products as well as standards for specific bio-based product groups. Much of this work relates to standardization requests from the European Commission, namely the mandates M/430, M/491 and M/492. Horizontal standardization activities in this area are being coordinated by the CEN Technical Committee ‘Bio-based products’ (CEN/TC 411). CEN will: • continue to develop horizontal standards for bio-based products and publish a new European Standard (EN 16575) on terminology related to bio-based products (EC Mandate M/492); Consumer products playground equipmen etc. Fireworks and other pyrotechnic articles The CEN Technical Committee ‘Pyro-technic articles’ (CEN/TC 212) is responsible for developing standards in relation to fireworks and other pyrotechnic articles. Much of this work is covered by requests (mandates) issued by the European Commission in connection with EU Directive 2007/23/EC. Energy - gas and wa systems, fuels, energy Environment - water biofuels, recovered fu CEN will start work on amending the European Standard EN 15947 (‘Pyrotechnic articles - Fireworks, categories 1, 2 and 3’). Fertilisers The CEN Technical Committee ‘Fertilizers and liming materials’ (CEN/TC 260) is in charge of completing standardization work requested by the European Commission with regard to methods for the analysis of fertilizers (EC mandates M/335, M/418 and M/454). Food – food analysis genetically modified food, etc. CEN will carry out work to develop standardized test methods for analysing the composition of fertilizers (EC mandate M/335).

  11. 11. Dangerous substances Sustainability The CEN Technical Committee ‘Construction Products - Assessment of release of dangerous substances’ (CEN/TC 351) is responsible for developing methods to assess the release of dangerous substances in the environment, in accordance with EC mandate M/366. Several Technical Specifications are being developed that, after validation, will be revised into European Standards. The CEN Technical Committee ‘Sustainability of Construction works’ (CEN/TC 350) is in charge of developing standardized methods for assessing the sustainability aspects of new and existing construction works, and standards for the environmental product declaration of construction products, in line with the European Standard ‘Sustainability of construction works - Environmental product declarations - Core rules for the product category of construction products’ (EN 15804:2012). CEN will finalize a series of Technical Specifications setting out methods for testing the release of dangerous substances into the environment (indoor air, groundwater and soil). Energy performance The European Commission has asked CEN to develop standards to promote the energy efficiency of buildings, including a methodology for calculating the energy performance of buildings, in line with the EU Directive on the energy performance of buildings (2010/31/EU). The CEN Project Committee ‘Energy Performance of Buildings’ (CEN/TC 371) is in charge of coordinating this work, in accordance with EC mandate M/480. CEN will proceed with the incorporation of sustainability aspects into European Standards for various types of construction products such as: thermal insulation products; round and sawn timber and precast concrete products. The standard relating to round and sawn timber (EN 16485) should be ready in April 2014. Specific standards are being developed by the CEN Technical Committees that deal with ‘Thermal performance of buildings and building components’ (CEN/TC 89), ‘Ventilation for buildings’ (CEN/TC 156), ‘Light and lighting’ (CEN/TC 169), ‘Heating systems in buildings’ (CEN/TC 228), and ‘Building automation, controls and building management’ (CEN/TC 247). Each new European Standard will be accompanied by a Technical Report with examples and background information.

Ecodesign Ecodesign is an approach whereby manufacturers seek to minimize the amount of energy used during the lifecycle of a product. The EU Eco-design Directive (2009/125/EC) establishes a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products. In July 2011, the European Commission asked the European Standardization Organizations (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI) to develop European Standards to support the implementation of the Ecodesign Directive. E b It is anticipated that the European Commission will ask CEN and CENELEC to produce horizontal Harmonized Standards regarding the recyclability, recoverability and reusability of some energy-related products (also known as the 3 ‘R’s). This will constitute the next big challenge for European standardization in the field of eco-design and energy efficiency. F g f CEN and CENELEC will: • continue developing European Standards to enable the ecodesign of energy-related products including: power transformers, storage cabinets and blast cabinets, condensing units and process chillers, electrical lamps, space heaters and combination heaters, water heaters, hot water storage tanks and related products (EC mandate M/495); H a e e H i • participate in preparatory studies related to products for which no EU Regulation is currently being drafted such as: commercial refrigeration, wastewater pumps, pool and aquarium pumps, electric motors, compressors, windows, power-generating equipment, smart appliances, steam boilers, power cables, shower heads and taps. H a p The request from the Commission (EC mandate M/495) is a horizontal mandate covering more than 25 different types of products that use energy or have an impact on the use of energy. Types of products covered by this mandate include: air conditioning and ventilation systems, boilers, coffee machines, refrigeration units, ovens, hobs and grills, lamps and luminaries, tumble dryers, heating products, computers and monitors, washing machines, dryers and dishwashers, sound and imaging equipment, water heaters, etc. I e T Energy Within CEN and CENELEC, more than 40 Technical Committees are involved in developing European Standards that will support the implementation of specific EU Regulations to be issued in the framework of the Ecodesign Directive. The overall coordination of this work is the responsibility of the CEN-CENELEC Ecodesign Coordination Group (Eco-CG). CEN and CENELEC Work Programme 2014 19
