CEN CENELEC Guide 31 “Competition law for participants in CEN activities” (GEN – 694.00)

13 May 2016

1 min read

GEN – 694.00. CEN and CENELEC have published this guide to avoid breaches of competition law.

CEN and CENELEC provide a platform for stakeholders from different types of organisations, including companies in competition with each other, to meet and work.

It is therefore crucial that participants in standards development do not behave in an anti-competitive way, because this will lead to a loss of trust in the integrity of the whole standardisation system.

As many staff members of companies and associations are involved they should remember that they are not exempt from the provisions of competition law when participating in standards development and other CEN and CENELEC activities and that anti-competitive behaviour is prohibited by law, even when they are unintentional.

It can be expected that similar to what is taking place in Eurovent meetings the CEN standardisation meetings will start with the acknowledgement of competition law.

Recommendation

Participants to CEN meetings are recommended to read the enclosed 7 page CEN CENELEC Guide 31.
