New approach to enable global leadership of EU standards promoting values and a resilient, green and digital Single Market


The European Commission presented a new Standardisation Strategy outlining our approach to standards within the Single Market as well as globally. 

The strategy aims to strengthen the EU’s global competitiveness, to enable a resilient, green and digital economy and to enshrine democratic values in technology applications.

The compliance with harmonised standards guarantees that products are in line with EU law for a climate-neutral, resilient and circular economy. By setting global standards, the EU exports its values while providing EU companies with an important first-mover advantage.
