CEN and CENELEC Membership Update

29 Jul 2020

BSI has informed BFPA of some positive news regarding BSI’s CEN and CENELEC membership following a meeting of their General Assemblies in June 2020.

BSI’s membership of CEN and CENELEC is guaranteed beyond the end of the EU exit transition period. The General Assemblies extended their timeframe to update the organizations’ statutes in response to the UK’s departure from the EU. This will now run until the end of 2021, enabling the UK’s continued influence over standards produced in CEN and CENELEC, providing stability and certainty for our stakeholders.

BSI is confident its membership will continue beyond that time and we are working with the other CEN and CENELEC members to ensure the best outcome for the UK.
