ECOS views on the Roadmap for the Standardisation Strategy
ECOS sees the Standardisation Strategy as a key opportunity to ensure standards work for the environment by delivering an inclusive and strategic standardisation system in support of high environmental ambition. Concerted proactive action is needed towards standards that are barriers to the deployment of clean technologies, environment-friendly materials or secondary raw materials. Environmentally ambitious Standardisation Requests are essential to make Europe the standards maker and support the European Green Deal. Commission control in initiating, managing and monitoring the procedure for the adoption of a harmonised standard is crucial. Inclusiveness is work-in-progress and needs continued political push at the national, international and European level, including within the European Commission.
