Development of CEN Deliverables

CEN produces a set of deliverables - differing in the levels of transparency, consensus and approval required before issue – offering a flexible means to meet market needs for technical requirements and information. Amongst these, the European Standard (EN) is the major deliverable, besides which CEN produces other publications with  different objectives, such as the  Technical Specification (CEN/TS), the  CEN Workshop Agreement, the Technical Report (CEN/TR), and the CEN Guide.

The production processes for the various CEN deliverables are accessible via the index on the left.

You may also wish participate in the pilot of the Online Collaborative Authoring platform to assist the drafting process.

Further details on the CEN deliverables and the needs which each of them meets, are summarised in the guidance document ‘CEN Deliverables’.
