Nederlands Normalisatie Instituut

NEN_Logo_PMS283_308_balk_kortNEN – the Netherlands Standardization Institute – stimulates and supports the development of standards. Standards are agreements made by interested parties regarding the quality and safety of their products, processes and services. As an independent, neutral party NEN inventories the need for standards and brings together interested parties to develop and finance these standards. NEN does this both within sector, national, European and global context. NEN administers and publishes all national and international standards that apply to the Netherlands: over 30.000 in total. NEN provides information, training courses and advice about standardization, standards and their use in practice. NEN is a member of various leading inter-institutional organizations at the European and global level, and occupies a key position in the web of international standardisation. NEN coordinates the project, as well as contributes to various tasks.
