Directive 2011/24/EU on the application of patients' rights in cross-border healthcare

Directive on patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare established the eHealth Network (eHN) of representatives of national authorities responsible for eHealth. Its objective is to work towards delivering sustainable economic and social benefits of European eHealth systems and services, and in particular to promote their interoperability. The new joint action on eHealth, liaising with Standardisation Organisations and other relevant stakeholders, will support the eHealth Network in taking policy decisions on standardisation initiative in the eHealth sector to boost interoperability, in line with the Work Plan 2015-1018 of the eHealth Network. In particular, it will explore the option of starting a standardisation process of specific elements of the guidelines adopted by the eHealth Network as well as of other cross-border eHealth services, such as interoperability aspects of telemedicine. In this regards, the Commission will support member states co-operation on interoperability by further developing and validating specifications and components and also through standardisation mandates if necessary. In addition a special effort should be dedicated to interoperability and harmonised coding of clinical databases, screening databases, genetic databases, cancer registries and, more in general, of all health-related databases (in the medium term to make it possible to interface health data with e.g. environmental, food safety, safety at work data

Communication on Green Infrastructure COM (2013)249, , COM (2013)216 on adaptation to climate change and referring to COM (2014)445 on resource efficiency opportunities in the building sector.

The Commission is currently initiating a research and innovation policy agenda to further develop and upscale the use of nature-based solutions and to promote the market for them in Europe and worldwide– including Green Infrastructure elements and adaptation measures. This refers as well to the sustainable construction of buildings (such as with green roofs and walls). The development of protocols for functional or performance based specifications and measurement and testing methodologies, leading eventually to standardisation, would help the assessment of the cost-effectiveness of nature-based solutions in economic, social and environmental terms, support public procurement of such solutions and overall stimulate the market for them. In addition to the above mentioned activities under Horizon 2020, a dedicated feasibility study is needed to involve relevant stakeholders to scan the area on this particular subject, based on and complementing actions towards standardisation prepared by other services.

Industrial Emissions Directive (IED)2010/75/EU

The Minamata Convention regulates i.a. emissions of mercury from industrial processes at a global level. Under the Industrial Emissions Directive there is an obligation to monitor mercury emissions from relevant sources, in particular coal fired power plants and waste incineration plants. Some Member States are applying more frequent emission monitoring at the most relevant sources. There is a need for a reliable and practical standardised method allowing both short term and long term mercury emission monitoring. Such a method could be based on the existing US EPA standard. Activity taking place in the context of the Global Earth Observation (GEO) initiative, Task: "HE-02-C1: Global Mercury Observation System" https://www.earthobservations.org/ts.php?id=171 and the FP7 funded project "Global mercury Observation System – GMOS" http://www.gmos.eu/ that should be taken into account when the new standards will take place.

Directive 2009/48/EC on the safety of toys. OJEU L 170, 30.6.2009, p. 1.

Directive 2009/48/EC is the legal basis to ensure the free movement of toys that provide a high level of safety for children under 14 years of age. The Directive requires toys to be safe with regard to physical and mechanical properties, flammability, chemical properties, electrical properties, hygiene and radioactivity.

Ensuring a high level of safety throughout the EU and by all stakeholders as well as the free movement of toys in the Internal Market requires standardised specifications. These specifications need to keep up with new scientific-technical and market developments, such as the development of innovative toys, and reports about accidents with toys. The available specifications therefore require updates as appropriate, the establishment of new specifications is of a lower priority.

Programming work on updates of standards covering all requirements for toys, and development of new standards if appropriate.

Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food, OJ L 338, 13.11.2004, p. 4)

Regulation (EU) No 1935/2004 provides the legal basis for several specific measures on food contact materials. These include Regulation 10/2011 (OJ L 12, 15.1.2011, p. 1) on plastic materials, Directive 84/500/EEC on ceramic articles and Regulation (EC) No 450/2009 on Active and Intelligent Materials. These acts set out limits for the transfer of substances that are components of materials to the food they are in contact with. The transfer of more than 1000 relevant substances may need to be determined in analytical testing. Yet only a very limited number of standardized methods are available. Certain emerging issues (oligomer migration, multi-analyte methods) call for the establishment of different standards to prevent that they develop into a non-tariff barriers. Moreover testing for specific substances may be selected according to internal market/trade relevance. To this end COM services (JRC) are already collaborating with ISO TC166 (ceramic ware, glass-ceramic ware and glass dinnerware in contact with food -- Release of lead and cadmium).

Role of European standards as part of the regulatory framework

European standards adopted on the basis of requests made by the Commission for the application of Union legislation are already a vital part of the regulatory framework for products. In order to ensure that European standards, and in particular harmonised standards, can maintain their position as a recognised reference point in ensuring compliance with the Union’s legislation – not only for products but also for services – a coherent and fully reviewed approach is needed in implementing the new legal requirements of the 2012 Standardisation Regulation. To ensure this the Commission will revise its guidance for drafting, adopting and executing standardisation requests focusing in particular on SME friendliness, transparency, quality and clarity of harmonised standards. In addition, the Commission intends to update mandate M/417 concerning standards relating to conformity assessment activities so they can continue to serve as a recognised reference for the accreditation of conformity assessment bodies, including those working in the framework of EU harmonisation legislation.

The Commission is gathering data and information for assessing the necessity of updating the M/417

Waterborne transport

Within the field of waterborne transport, technical solutions and standards are based on both European and international requirements. The Commission is considering to issue a standardisation request to the ESOs concerning the development of standards for maritime transport information sharing in support of the e-Maritime initiative and in order to support the implementation of the Directive 2010/65/EU on National Single Windows and electronic transmission of data towards other relevant systems, in particular the Directive 2002/59/EC on Union Maritime Information and Exchange System , SafeSeaNet. In this context a close link with e-Freight, e-Customs and e-Navigation initiatives will be established.

The Commission will evaluate the need for standardisation with the industry and other stakeholders in the framework of the Forum on Digital Transport and Logistics that was launched in Summer 2015. The consultation of the Forum will be used to draft a Mandate to CEN/CENELEC or other appropriate standardisation bodies. The work builds on the technical specifications already agreed at operational level for the Directives on VTMIS (2002/59/EC) and Ship Reporting Formalities (2010/65/EU). The initiative will be coordinated with the on-going work of other standardisation bodies active in this area, like the International Maritime Organization, ISO and the World Customs Organization. A mandate covering items which are currently listed in Annex A.2 of Directive 96/98/EC on Marine equipment (e.g. public address & general emergency alarm systems, firehoses with a diameter > 56mm) is being considered by the Commission.

Defence

The recent Communication COM (2013) 542 on the defence and security sectors highlighted that the use of common defence standards greatly enhances co-operation and interoperability as well as the competitiveness of Europe's industry especially in emerging technologies. This approach was supported by the European Council in its Conclusions on the Common Security & Defence Policy of 19th December 2013. The Commission will be working with the European Defence Agency to examine ways to promote the use of common standards in defence and in other areas referred to in the Communication. Any work taken forward in this area would not duplicate NATO activities.

The Commission has developed, with the European Defence Agency, a new mechanism for identifying the need for new standards in defence without duplicating NATO standardisation activities. The Commission will examine any recommendations for new European standards that come out of this mechanism and also related to other aspects of the implementation plan for the Defence Communication (COM (2014) 0387). It will also continue to work with the Agency to promote the use of common standards.

This work will support inter alia the Commission's initiative on the Common Information Sharing Environment for the surveillance of the EU maritime domain (Maritime CISE- COM/2009/0538 and COM/2010/0584) and in particular defence-civil cooperation.
Of particular importance is the enhancement of information
exchange between different sectorial functions, in particular between defence and other sectors, by making maritime surveillance systems interoperable through the use of common standards.

The development of the Common Information Sharing Environment (CISE) for the surveillance of the EU maritime domain has moved to a pre-operational step in 2015 with the launch of a FP7 funded project (called EUCISE 2020) in December 2014. This project will design (phase 1 in 2015) and test (phase 2 in 2016) common specifications to enable information exchange between coastguard authorities within the EU. The standardization process has hence been withheld in order to enable the use of the results of this project to better refine the scope of the standardization needs. It is thus requested to carry forward to 2016 the development of standards for CISE.

eHealth

Studies show that European and international standards are often not specific enough to ensure interoperability of ICT solutions in eHealth. Seeking the endorsement of the eHealth Network and consulting the eHealth Stakeholders’ Group, more detailed specifications, including interoperability testing guidelines and quality management systems, for the cross-border exchange of data (i.e. in patient summaries or ePrescription), to be used e.g. in public procurement, will be identified to contribute to the eHealth Interoperability Framework.
The Commission proposes to boost interoperability by further d
eveloping and validating specifications and components and, if necessary, through standardisation mandates.

The eHealth Network has been consulted in January 2015 on the Technical Specifications - Integrating Healthcare Enterprises (IHE) profiles - that had already received positive advice by the ICT Multi-Stakeholder Platform (MSP). The eHealth Network confirmed the positive advice of the MSP.

In line with Commission Decision provided for in Art. 13 of Regulation 1025/2012, the European Commission issued on 28th of July 2015 the Decision 2015/1302 on the identification of ‘Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise’ (IHE) profiles for referencing in public procurement.

This decision allows for the 27 IHE profiles to be identified as ICT technical specifications eligible for referencing in public procurement.

The 27 IHE profiles are detailed specifications that optimise the selection of well-established standards describing the different layers of interoperability (i.e. protocol communication, technical, syntactical, semantic and application levels) with the aim to find interoperability solutions for exchanging or sharing medical data.

Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS)

The Commission is considering issuing a standardisation request to develop standards for the future generation eCall services, taking into account the evolution of mobile communication networks and the IP environment and also considering a wider range of vehicle types and services, such as Heavy Duty Vehicles, Power Two Wheelers or Hazardous Goods tracking.

CEF Annual Call 2014 addresses eCall studies and pilots incl. eCall services for a wider range of vehicles. In case MS submit a proposal and it is selected further progress would be made on this topic and could further substantiate the need for potential standards in this domain.

Broadband infrastructure mapping

The European Parliament and the Council recently adopted Directive 2014/61/EU on measures to reduce the cost of deploying high-speed electronic communications networks. In this context, information about physical infrastructures available in the area of deployment should be made available.
The Commission may con
sider a standardisation request for a common language available for use by Regulatory Authorities, Ministries and Operators/Utilities and include a set of successive standardised layers of authorization, details, type (service, infrastructure, demand, investment maps…). This standard for broadband infrastructure mapping should benefit as much as possible from the INSPIRE technical guidance for regulation 1253/2013

This new standardisation mandate will be presented to the standardisation committee on 23 April 2015 and adopted subsequently. CEN has already raised its interest.

eProcurement/eCatalogues

e-Procurement [COM(2013)453] technology interoperability and standardisation is a key strategy to remove technical barriers or extra costs when suppliers bid on a plurality of systems. In order to achieve a true single market, bidders including SMEs ideally should be able to communicate and participate, in multiple markets across various systems, through their favourite or a common system. The need for standardisation in the e-Procurement domain was strongly reaffirmed by the e-Tendering Expert (eTEG) group in a report issued in February 2013, which included a number of standardisation actions to be undertaken as soon as possible.

Standardisation activities in the domain of electronic public procurement are being carried out by the CEN Project Committee 440 (CEN/PC 440), which was set up in June 2015.

Online gambling services

As announced in the Communication "Towards a comprehensive European framework for online gambling" [COM(2012)596] the Commission is considering the merits of introducing standards for gambling equipment. Certification of online gambling equipment including gambling software is commonly required by Member States' competent authorities in connection with an application for a gambling licence. A comparable level of security of online gambling in the EU is also aimed at a reduction of unnecessary administrative burdens relating to the different national certification procedures. To this end, the Commission will work with Member States through the group of experts on gambling services and with industry stakeholders including accreditation and standardisation organisations so as to benefit from shared knowledge and experience.

The Commission in consultation with the Member states and industrial stakeholders is exploring needs for standardisation in the area of online gambling services in order to finalise a standardisation request.

Fluorinated greenhouse gases

The new Regulation on fluorinated greenhouse gases (No 517/2014) introduces far-reaching policy changes to reduce the use of fluorinated gases in equipment such as air conditioning, refrigeration, foams, fire protection and aerosols. Hence the Commission foresees the following actions:
• mapping existing standards and their relevance for the equipmen
t types affected by the new fluorinated gas Regulation;
• making recommendations on a review, update and possible harmonisation of these standards based on technological progress to enable the safe use of climate-friendly alternatives and removing unnecess
ary barriers to their uptake;
• launching a review process in areas where this is deemed necessary.

In preparation - A preliminary study by an external consultant is carrying out a survey in Member States to find out where the obstacles and gaps are. Results are expected 3rd/4th quarter 2015. These results will be the basis for drafting a mandate to European standardization organisations. mandate to be finalised early 2016

Green Infrastructure

The Communication COM(2013)249 on the strategy on Green Infrastructure identifies standards as possibly contributing to 'growing the market' for Green Infrastructure solutions. The Commission will assess how technical standards, particularly in relation to physical building blocks and procedures, could increase the deployment of Green Infrastructure. Input from stakeholders and Member States, and through a study contract, the final results of which are expected in 2015, should help in considering the need for a mandate on further harmonising or developing Green Infrastructure-related standards.

Assessing possibilities for standardisation of Green Infrastructure products, methodologies and procedures has started by contractor

Discussions on possible mandates within EC and with European standardisation organisations in 2nd quarter 2015, followed by assessing contract results in 3rd quarter 2015. Definition of mandates in 4th quarter 2015]
