Friday, 8 March 2024, 11:00am CET (Brussels time), online

We are pleased to invite you to a new ANEC open webinar: ‘Safe products for all consumers – EC study on gender-responsive and inclusive standards’, taking place on Friday 8 March 2024 from 11h00 to 12h00 CET (Brussels time).

We will be honoured to have Frauke Hoss from the European Commission (GROW.H.2) to present the recent “EU 2024 Study on inclusiveness of anthropometrics in European harmonised standards”, with ANEC’s Chiara Giovannini guiding you through this webinar.

The initiative aims to gather informative and objective evidence about the extent to which the European harmonised standards (hENs) safeguard the general principle of equality and safety so that products are safe for the European population in all its diversity. Overall, the study aims to improve our understanding of the implications for safety and health caused by standards that do not sufficiently consider the diversity of anthropometric dimensions of human bodies.

To this end, such standards need to be based on recent data that is representative of the EU population, both in the design and testing of products.

We look forward to having you join!
