A European/international standard is developed by a European/international technical committee (CEN/TC… /ISO/TC…). The members of a CEN/TC / ISO/TC are the standardisation bodies, NBN for Belgium.These standardisation bodies create a national mirror committee (NBN/E ... / NBN/I...) which is open to all stakeholders. This mirror committee reflects the work of the original CEN/TC / ISO/TC.
Members of the national (mirror) committee receive all CEN/TC / ISO/TC working documents and can vote on all inquiries. For NBN experts, this done via our NBN eCommittees and NBN eBalloting portals. Consequently, a member does not have access to the actual CEN/TC / ISO/TC server.
Experts don’t miss any information and always receive an e-mail notification whenever a new document is uploaded to the platform. Synchronisation between the CEN/ISO platform and the NBN platform is automatic.
As for NBN, it does have access to the CEN/ISO platform. Indeed, NBN holds the vote for Belgium at the CEN/TC / ISO/TC level. Experts vote via the NBN eBalloting portal and can also register for CEN/TC / ISO/TC meetings via NBN.
