The European Standard (EN) is CENELEC's principal deliverable.
An EN is the result of a transparent, open and consensual development process with national commitment. The individual steps of this process are accessible via the index on the left, where they appear in chronological order.
The Frankfurt Agreement between IEC and CENELEC sets out a commitment to undertake work primarily at IEC level. Therefore the majority of CENELEC ENs is developed within IEC Technical Bodies and adopted by CENELEC.
European Standards shall be implemented at national level in all CENELEC member countries by being given the status of national standards and any conflicting national standard shall be withdrawn.
