Shaping the European Standardisation Roadmap of Crisis Management and Civil Protection

(Workshop M/487)
Date: 09 April 2013
Location:City of Edinburgh Council, UK
The European Commission, pursuing the increase of the global competitiveness of EU security industry while enhancing the security of Europe, has requested the European Standardisation Organisations (ESOs) to draft three European standardisation roadmaps in the security sector under action 1 in their Communication on Security Industrial Policy.
One of the roadmaps to be developed is for crisis management / civil protection, focusing on standards for communication interoperability, as well as interoperability of command and control, including organisational interoperability, as well as mass notification of the population. Related issues pertinent to standardisation in crisis management and civil protection could also be considered.
The Netherlands Standardisation Institute (NEN), coordinator of the mandate work, and the City of Edinburgh Council, together with the British Standards Institution host of this event, welcome experts in the field of crisis management and civil protection to share their ideas and experiences in this workshop. 
Subject experts and representatives from relevant constituencies are invited to register online for this workshop. Interested parties unable to attend the workshop may also contribute to the roadmap. Please also register online to receive further instructions.
