CEN Technical Bodies

The following CEN Technical Committees have been found of particular interest for SMEs:

Standardisation work related to the Directive on Pyrotechnic Articles

The main standardisation activities related to Pyrotechnic Articles of particular interest for Small and Medium enterprises is linked with the EU Directive 2013/29/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 June 2013 on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of pyrotechnic articles (recast).  More information about the standards and work items prepared in support of the EU legislation can be found by clicking on this link: https://genorma.com/en/project/search-by-directive-in-development/26265376 and then selecting on "project" and/or "published" in the advanced search.

See also CEN/TC 212 Pyrotechnic articles.

Standardisation work related to the Regulation on fertilising products

The main standardisation activities are supporting Regulation (EU) 2019/1009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 June 2019 laying down rules on the making available on the market of EU fertilising products and amending Regulations (EC) No 1069/2009 and (EC) No 1107/2009 and repealing Regulation (EC) No 2003/2003 which affects both SMEs as producers or as users of fertilisers. More information about the standards and work items prepared for the application of this legislation can be found by clicking on this link: https://genorma.com/en/directive/show/28382467.
