THE IMPORTANCE OF EN STANDARDS POST BREXIT
What is it?: Post Brexit BSi will continue to be a full participant in European Standards. CEN is separate from the EU. The UK is no longer a member of the EU but BSi is a member of CEN and will continue to be so after the transition period ends.
Why is it important?: BVAA through their participation in the various BSi committees for example PSE/18 will still have the ability to influence EN standards.
BSi will continue to have full voting rights on all EN standards and EN standards will continue to be adopted as BS EN standards. This includes standards which have an Annex ZA and are subsequently Harmonised. Although we cannot any longer contribute to the Directives we are still able to influence the Harmonised standards. It is therefore essential that we continue to play an active role in all EN standards activity for valves and actuators
