The Council further expressed support of the work developed under the Joint Initiative on Standardisation to promote a shared vision for improving the European standardisation system and called upon the European Commission to continue its work beyond 2019, particularly in the areas of education on standardisation, raising awareness of the role of standardisation and promoting the European standardisation system at international level.
