The EU supports an effective and coherent standardisation framework, which ensures that high quality standards are developed in a timely manner. In this context, the European Commission is launching on a periodic basis consultations on general standardisation isues.

The purpose of this consultation is to allow stakeholders interested in standardisation involving patents, to bring to the Commission's attention their views on:

  • how the current framework governing standardisation involving patents performs and on
  • how it should evolve to ensure that standardization remains efficient and adapted to the fast-changing economic and technological environment.
