UNE welcomes 32 new members

14/12/2021

A total of 32 new members have joined the Spanish Association for Standardization, UNE, in the past year. To welcome these new members, a welcome meeting was held to find out more about UNE, which will focus towards 2025 in response to the challenges faced by society and the needs of our members. The event was attended by the Chairman and Managing Director of UNE, Carlos Esteban and Javier García, respectively.

These leading entities, from a broad cross section of industries, have opted for UNE as a place from which to contribute to the competitiveness of companies and to the progress of society. Being a member of the Spanish standardisation body means belonging a network of multisectoral and international contacts, an exemplary case of public-private partnership.

The new members include major industry associations, as well as large companies, SMEs, universities, colleges, research centres, public administrations and private individuals.

UNE's membership distinguishes organisations with a superior strategic view of their value contribution to their sector and the Spanish economy as a whole.

With these new members, the Association has grown its membership base to over 500. UNE members are the real driving force and support of the standardisation system, representing virtually all of Spain's business and economic fabric.
