What we do for you
Few people are interested in technical standardisation and even fewer have heard of ANEC. Yet, although standardisation may not seem at all sexy at first glance, it is an essential component of modern life and the role of ANEC is key.

ANEC 2018

Work Programme 2018
The Work Programme sets out the activities ANEC plans to undertake in 2018. It lists areas of activity under our seven priority areas, as well as under the horizontal area of Policy. ANEC priorities are also reflected in the UAWP for Standardisation 2018.
