SME Standards Support Report

27/06/2019

The Spanish Association for Standardisation, UNE, has published UNEIN Report, Access and participation of SMEs in standardisation, en el que pone de manifiesto la decidida contribución de la normalización a la pymes. 

In the report, UNE presents the benefits of SMEs' participation in standardisation. It allows small and medium-sized enterprises to increase their competitiveness and access new markets.

SMEs benefit most from standardization, since it enables them to gain immediate access to the knowledge and cutting-edge technology that standards provide, while serving as a business card, since these organizations are generally less well-known.

UNE facilitates SME participation in the preparation of standards, whether on a national, European or international level.

Did you know that 85% of companies that take part in standardization activities either directly or indirectly represent SMEs through professional associations or federations?

And that 75% of the activity of the Technical Standardization Committees (CTN) is coordinated by associations or federations composed of SMEs, which allows them direct access to the work and information of these committees?

Last 27 June was Micro-, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises Day.
