Comités Europeus

O Comité Europeu de Normalização (CEN) é o organismo reconhecido pela União Europeia para a preparação das Normas Europeias (EN) não pertencentes ao sector eléctrico, sendo o Comité Europeu de Normalização Electrotécnica (CENELEC), o organismo responsável pela elaboração e seguimento destas últimas.

Existem actualmente mais de 300 Comités Técnicos (TCs) de ambas as organizações referidas, que normalizam diversas áreas de actividade, de entre as quais se sublinham as que estabelecem algum tipo de relação com a Indústria do Gás.
