Standardisation aspects were given great attention in the project REACH2020 (Responsive Engagement of the Elderly Promoting Activity and Customized Healthcare) with the aim to enhance the uptake and dissemination of the developed technical ‘tools’ that allow home and care environments to be transformed into customizable prevention systems for older people.

Knowledge of existing standards can be a crucial success factor, as compliance with existing standards ensures acceptance and usability, also in terms of interoperability, and it facilitates compliance with regulatory requirements.

Standardisation activities within REACH2020 were used as an important instrument to use project results at national (DIN NA 023-00-07 AA), European (CWA 17502) and international (ISO/TC 314) standardisation levels.
