Eurosmart's answer to the Commission's inception impact assessment on certification and labelling
11 September 2017
Eurosmart welcomes the European Commission’s initiative as presented in its inception impact assessment and shares its view on the need to address the current fragmentation at both governance and market levels. Our association is fully involved in the current EU debate on ICT security certification and has been championing a meta-scheme approach in several EU working groups such as ECSO. Moreover, in addition to a European ICT security certification framework, Eurosmart supports the adoption of a mandatory EU labelling scheme “Certified in Europe” built on established security requirements and recognised certification schemes. A European ICT security certification and labelling framework will boost confidence, enhance visibility amongst users as well as equipment manufacturers and thus reinforce trust in the market.
