NEN develops different types of agreements; standards, practice guidelines or technical agreements. These are the differences between the agreements:
Result: a standard that has wide support and authority
This is a temporary agreement with constituent demands but where provisions are missing, incomplete or are included without prejudice. The intention is to publish the agreement as Dutch standard (NEN Standard) if further testing has taken place or additions have been made
and agreement has been reached.
Result: a practical implementation of the provisions of the standard. For example: explanations of standards, constructive possibilities, methods and manufacturing data.
Result: appointment that can be established quickly. This offers added value in areas where the developments are at high speed.
