What we do for you
Few people are interested in technical standardisation and even fewer have heard of ANEC. Yet, although standardisation may not seem at all sexy at first glance, it is an essential component of modern life and the role of ANEC is key.

ANEC 2020

Work Programme 2020
The Work Programme sets out the activities ANEC plans to undertake in 2020. It lists areas of activity under our seven priority areas, as well as under the horizontal area of Policy. ANEC priorities are also reflected in the AUWP for Standardisation 2020.
