The European Conference "SMEs and Standardisation" will be held in the Square Business Center in Brussels on the 28th May 2013. It will provide a unique opportunity to discuss how to promote the successful participation of SMEs in standardisation activities, and make it easier for them to access the results.
What are the benefits that European Standards can offer to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)?
- To improve their efficiency and competitiveness, minimize waste and reduce costs.
- To ensure the quality and safety of products and services, and to make it easier to sell them throughout Europe and around the world
- To help to create a level playing field, allowing SMEs to access more markets and to attract new customers.
SMEs can take full advantage of the benefits and opportunities offered by European Standards, but often don't know how.
