29-01-2016 CEN and CENELEC have renewed their joint Cooperation Agreement with the Standards Council of Canada (SCC). The three organizations have decided to maintain and build on their successful cooperation, initiated in 2012. This cooperation contributes to the removal of Technical Barriers to Trade and thereby helps to facilitate trade in goods and services between Europe and Canada.
The CEN-CENELEC-SCC Cooperation Agreement was formally renewed on 25 January in Brussels by Elena Santiago Cid, Director General of CEN and CENELEC and John Walter, Chief Executive Officer of SCC. The signing ceremony was also attended by His Excellency Daniel Costello (Canadian Ambassador to the European Union), and Kerstin Jorna (Director 'Single Market Policy, Regulation and Implementation', DG GROW, European Commission).
