Standards directly influence more than 80% of world trade. However, the general public is often unaware of the existence and impact of standards. Generally, there are two types of standard users – direct and indirect. Direct users are standards implementers or organisations and persons that use or apply standards in various activities (e.g. research, design, production, service provision, conformity assessment, etc.). Indirect users are all those affected by the standard’s application, e.g. users of standard-compliant products and services. 

Standards are developed to be used. A successful standard is a standard that is accepted in the market. Understanding standards users might be a changing point in understanding the needs for one standard. There are plenty of reasons why the voice of direct and indirect standards users is vital in standardisation development. This training session aims to raise awareness of standards users and bring the work of Small Business Standards (SBS) and the European Association for the Coordination of Consumer Representation in Standardisation (ANEC) closer to researchers. 


Who should attend?

The training session is intended for the researchers who participate in EU-funded R&I projects and anyone interested in the basics of standardisation.
