European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC)

Definition - What does European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) mean?

The European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC, from the French Comité Européen de Normalisation Électrotechnique) is the European committee responsible for standards regarding electric and electronic goods in Europe. CENELEC works with other European systems for technical standardization, and helps in removing barriers in quality, safety and trade.

Some countries outside Europe also follow these standards in their markets.

Techopedia explains European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC)

Founded in 1973, the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization’s members are national electrotechnical standardization bodies of many European countries. The committee is officially responsible for standardization in the electrotechnical field. The committee was formed to shape the European internal market and promote technological development. The standardization from CENELEC helps small and medium enterprises in Europe to reach wider markets and increase productivity.

It promotes innovation standards applicable to industry, and thus promotes both services and products among consumers. The standards developed can also help in interoperability and compatibility of services and products. The standards indirectly help users by reduction in prices of products and services due to lowering production costs. The committee also ensures the standards promote safety and environmental products. CENELEC is not a European Union institution, although it cooperates closely with the European Union.

In short, the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization helps in being compliant to standards, improving interoperability and helping in expanding the market position.
