Support to a consortium comprising CEN (coordinator) and CENELEC in cooperation with ETSI, as well as the JRC as the current ERNCIP coordinator, to address how to achieve timely standardization in the field of security, including through structural changes.

Pre-standardisation and standardisation processes as currently in place in the fields of security and civil protection are not considered satisfactory, whilst many of their components are very valuable: the JRC produces interesting pre-standards in cooperation with a broader research community; CEN/CENELEC and ETSI produce solid standards with the very active involvement of industry. However, both sets of activities are not very agile and they do not interface optimally.

These organizations are invited to propose mechanisms and novel ways of working and organizing themselves, towards the establishment of standardisation processes in the field of security that build upon the strength of the various processes in place, and increase their effectiveness, speed and efficiency.
