Product safety legislation is supported in many sectors by European standards. An example is the German Equipment and Product Safety Act, the pursuant regulations of which transpose a number of European directives. Provision is made for these directives to be supported by harmonized European standards. European standards therefore have an important function in the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases.
For this reason, KAN has commissioned a study into the possible influence of the OH&S sector on the CEN standards development process. The study describes the procedures for standards development work at CEN, including its interaction with international and national standards development. It also describes the instruments available for influencing European standards development activity, and identifies the CEN committees of particular interest to occupational health and safety. In this respect the study is based strongly upon the structure of KAN Report 34, "Possible influence of the OHS sector on ISO standardization".
