Standards development, or standardisation, is the process of arriving at a standard. This process is open, transparent and consensus-based. It takes place in standards committees made up of experts. Standards are thus created in working groups in which specialists within the same field consider a specific subject.

A standard is created in 4 stages: proposal, draft, public inquiry and publication.
...you can recognise a draft standard by its name: Belgian draft standards start with the code prNBN, European ones with prEN and international ones with DIS ISO.
1. What are standards projects?
Standards projects are the standards committees’ work programmes. They are an overview of the standards the committees are in the process of developing. Standards projects also show which stage of development the standards are at.
2. Where do you find the overview?
As an innovative sensor manufacturer, we are always looking for new technologies to optimize the operation and safety of automatic doors. Our mission during the working group meetings of the international and European standardisation committees? To explain what sensors can do today. In this way, we want to continuously improve existing standards and complement them with new technological solutions.
