On 1 September 2023, the European Commission published the first part of its consultation on revision of Standardisation Regulation (EU) No. 1025/2012. As announced in the EU Standardization Strategy 2022, the Regulation is to be reassessed and reviewed to determine whether it is still fit for purpose after over ten years in application, and whether it is still keeping pace with developments in technical standardization at national, European and global level. The Standardisation Regulation sets out the procedure for cooperation between the EU institutions, the Member States and the European standards organizations in the development of harmonized standards in the EU.

The general public and relevant stakeholders will now be consulted in several stages regarding the efficacy, efficiency, coherence and relevance of the Regulation, and its added value for the EU. The Commission is currently planning to complete the entire process by the third quarter of 2024. A concrete legislative proposal could then be published in the fourth quarter of 2024.
