SBS appointed a total of 68 experts to represent the interests of SMEs in standardisation in 2020. Following an open call, numerous applications from across Europe were submitted and evaluated. Formally appointed by SBS’ General Assembly, these experts now cover new sectors such as cultural heritage, cycles, glass in buildings, acoustic properties of building elements and buildings, and cookware.

Experts from SBS are active in Technical Committees, Sub-Committees and Working Groups in the European Standardisation Organisations (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI) and at international level (ISO and IEC). The aim of their participation in such meetings is to contribute to SME-compatible standards.
