Providing a voice for the home appliance industry in Europe – the European Committee of Domestic Equipment Manufacturers

#SmartStandards for Smart Appliances


Today is #WorldStandardsDay2017. The home appliance industry thrives in a market that is supported by the European standardisation process that brings many benefits to both industry and consumers alike.

CECED believes that smart appliances need equally smart standards: that is, standards that can cope with developments in innovation, that are sufficiently flexible and responsive to the speed of change and are technology neutral. 

Says Paolo Falcioni, CECED's Director-General: “The standardisation process is absolutely fundamental to our industry. The way in which standards are developed for smart appliances will go a long way to further develop this technology in the market place. We welcome all moves that help the standardisation process stimulate the exciting innovations our industry continues to generate.”
