EDF has submitted feedback on the public consultation for the European Commission’s proposal to amend Regulation (EU) 1025/2012 on European Standardisation.
We have welcomed the European Commission’s proposal to amend Regulation (EU) 1025/2012 on European Standardisation as a first step towards ensuring a transparent European standardisation system with improved governance and empowered European rights-holders.
However, as we have demonstrated in our feedback, we do not believe this amendment is enough to ensure that the European standardisation system is fit for supporting EU policies, nor that it is inclusive for persons with disabilities and their representative organisations.
Therefore, we call on the Commission to build on this positive development and launch a comprehensive revision of the Regulation to address the many challenges in relation to a truly representative, fair, and inclusive European standardisation system.
