Open call for experts to represent SMEs in standardisation work at EU and international level

SBS has been selected by the European Commission to represent small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the standardisation process, motivate them to get involved and raise their awareness about standardisation. In this framework, SBS is launching an open call to appoint experts to represent the interests of SMEs in Technical Committees (TCs), Sub-Committees (SCs) and Working Groups (WGs) of CEN, CENELEC, ETSI, ISO and IEC (see page 6 for links to the lists of technical bodies of the respective organisation). Experts will be appointed for one year and their appointment is renewable. The call will be co-funded by the European Union and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). 

This call is open to candidates with technical expertise in any standardisation topic relevant for SMEs. Applications on topics included in Annex 3 of this call are strongly encouraged.  


Application deadline: 11 September 2023 midnight (CET)

A webinar will be organised on the 1st of September 2023 from 10:00 to 11:00 to introduce SBS and present the call for experts. This will allow interested candidates to ask questions about the calls and the role of SBS experts. More information will soon be available.
