The standardization of hand tools is currently being challenged in different way like limited resources, formal obstacles and intensified Chinese activities.

The European Union has published a Standardization Strategy and will implement its principles into product regulations like the General Product safety Regulation and the Construction Products Regulation.

CEO has invited Helena LE GOFF-JEDRZEJOWICZ, Advisor Internal Market at ORGALIM to give an introduction on the initiative and on its impact on the European mechanical industry. After this introduction, Thomas Holland-Letz (FWI) will give a report on some challenges for the European tool industry at ISO level, which is currently more relevant for hand tools than CEN.
