EU Directives' policy and company standardization

This lecture provides an overview of the "New Approach" of the European Commission. At the same time, attention is drawn to the importance of the EU-Directives and of the significance of European standards in the life cycle of products. This serves as a basis for underlining how important it is to implement European standards within the company system of standards.
