This paper outlines the role played by CEN in European standardisation of advanced technical ceramics and briefly describes its working procedure. The technical working programme of TC 184 is presented. In areas where the necessary knowledge or expertise is lacking, prenormative research (PNR) actions have been launched, either within the framework of existing international groups such as VAMAS, or as a separate initiative. PNR projects on advanced technical ceramics under the Third and Fourth Framework programmes, and their interaction with European standardisation, are also described.
