Ahead of our webinar on Brexit on January 17th, Enterprise Europe Network have shared a report on the likely impact of the UK’s exiting the EU on its role in developing future standards. The post reports on a recent webinar hosted by the British Standards Institute, BSI, on how the UK’s involvement in setting future standings could be affected.
The key takeaways from the webinar were that:
- Following the result of the UK referendum there will be a transition period. While negotiations are on-going, it is business as usual for BSI, including all aspects of standards making, policy and strategy work.
- BSI’s ambition is that the UK should continue to participate in the European Standardization System, with BSI as a full member of CEN and CENELEC.
- BSI is confident that a UK exit from the EU will not affect BSI’s membership of ISO, IEC and ETSI.
