The Spanish Association for Standardization, UNE, wishes to welcome its seven newest members who have just recently joined, bringing membership to over 500 associates, representing practically the entire Spanish productive fabric.
The new members (companies and institutions) include:
The Telecommunications Coordinator Federation (FECOTEL); the Standard
Spanish Compliance Association (ASCOM); the Standard
University of Malaga (UMA); the
Official College of Psychology of Las Palmas (COPLP); the Standard
The Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV); the Standard
Asociación Profesional de Peritos de Nuevas Tecnologías (professional association of new technology experts) (PETEC) and
Being a member means belonging a network of multisectoral and international contacts, a model case of public-private partnership. These include relevant national sector associations, as well as large companies, SMEs, universities, colleges, research centres and public administrations.
UNE's membership distinguishes organisations with a superior strategic view of their value contribution to their sector and the Spanish economy as a whole. UNE members are committed to the quality of the products and services of their respective sectors, through the development standards that help companies and administrations successfully overcome their major challenges.
In addition, being a member of UNE improves the influence of the organisations on international and European standards, which are essential for their competitiveness.
Technical standards contain the market consensus on best practices for dealing with key issues for organisations, and they are the language spoken by international markets. Standards bring economic benefits: for companies, they can account for up to 5% of their annual sales revenue, while for the Spanish economy as a whole, standards already account for 1% of GDP.
All companies that wish to do so can join UNE: corporate (sector associations), members (companies and institutions) and individuals.
