Position Paper:


The European Commission released on the 13th September 2017 the “Proposal for a Regulation of the EP and the Council on ENISA, the "EU Cybersecurity Agency", and repealing Regulation (EU) 526/2013, and on Information and Communication Technology cybersecurity certification” (‘Cybersecurity Act’) [COM (2017) 477].

Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies

Digital solutions in construction

There is a plethora of tools out there: artificial intelligence, 3D printing, drones, and quantum computers ... the one thing that links these technologies is data. Digitalization increases productivity. At the same time, it increases traceability of construction materials, as well as analysis of energy performance. This is crucial to meet the decarbonization goals of Europe and the ambitions of the European Commission's Green Deal. Standardization is key, because it improves interoperability and at the same time boosts innovation. With new technologies, standards BUILD trust.

CEN and CENELEC standards define good practice for Europe, representing the pan-European consensus of broad and representative stakeholder communities. These experts codify their knowledge through an independent, inclusive and transparent system.

The resulting standards, for voluntary use, reflect the current technological state of the art, are future-proofed, and integrate seamlessly with international standards.
