The development of a standard is a meticulous and complicated process involving numerous parties. There are a lot of things to consider at each step of the standardisation process. Because of this, it takes up to three years to develop a standard.
Most standards are developed at an international level. NBN coordinates Belgian participation and brings experts together to sit on a standards committee. Companies, authorities or other interested parties can also take part.
NBN manages a number of standards committees itself. In addition, sector operators are also a crucial part of the standardisation process. They may also manage standards committees and take charge of the administrative and technical follow-up process for these committees within a particular field. They form the link between the experts on these committees on the one hand and NBN on the other. They also ensure that all interested parties are able to take part in the standardisation process.
Are there no standards for your sector (yet)? NBN can help you! We would be pleased to make our standards expertise and experience in developing standards available to your organisation. We can offer you the chance to enhance your expertise, help define the market and even enter into cross-sector partnerships with potential new partners from our network.
