Task 5

Applications of methodologies for qualification, assessment and prioritization of potential harmonization or alignment at European level

In Task 5, we will apply the methodologies that are developed in Task 4 to narrow down the potential candidate topics to a focused shortlist of topics where alignment or harmonisation at the European level should be considered. A recommended alignment/harmonisation option (intervention) shall be identified and presented for each shortlisted topic, alongside an indicative cost-benefit analysis/impact assessment for each intervention.

The type of intervention(s) proposed will reflect the assessed risks associated with the topic and the potential value (benefit) of standardisation, and could include regulation, codes of practice, harmonised (EN) standards or simply the sharing of good practice
