Brussels, 18 April 2011 -  Boosting the free movement of services by facilitating the definition of services standards at European level is also the aim of CEN and CENELEC. An effective services market is of utmost importance in generating growth and jobs in Europe.

Single Market Act
Together for new growth - 12 projects for the 2012 Single Market - The European Commission has adopted the Single Market Act, launching 12 projects with the objective of achieving a stronger Single Market, with a greener and more inclusive growth.

CEN and CENELEC, two of the three recognized European Standardization Organizations  (ESOs), welcome this action plan and the 12 instruments - each with its flagship initiative - identifying the priorities to make life easier for business, citizens, consumers and workers in the Single Market.

Standardization – a major role to play
Standardization has a major role to play in assisting a well-functioning Single Market. In the past European standardization has already contributed in essential ways to remove technical barriers for businesses, to promote the spread of new technologies and to foster innovation. European standards are adopted identically by the 31 member countries of CEN and CENELEC, withdrawing national conflicting standards and therefore ensuring one standard for Europe.
