CEN Workshop 75

December 9, 2013

CEN has recently established a new Workshop on “Terminology Policy to Support Generic Applications of Management Systems with focus on Smaller Organisations in a Multilingual Environment”. The project kick-off meeting took place in Brussels on 29 and 39 July in Brussels.

The main purpose of the project is to develop a CWA integrating the results of the EU research project PROMISLingua and to explain the methodology of the project for ease of application of management systems in smaller organisations. The target stakeholders are Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) that are now facing steadily increasing requirements from standards and regulations related to environmental, quality performance, health&safety and other regulatory issues at local, national and international levels. Currently, SMEs cannot afford appropriate personnel and financial resources to cope efficiently with these demands and they need tailored business services to help them overcome the challenging requirements of effectively and safely operating their on-going activities.

The CIP-PSP research project PROMISLingua (Performance Operational and Multilingual Interactive Services to support Compliance for SMEs in Europe) aims at facilitating SMEs’ access to tailored information and advice on legislation, standardisation and the integrated application of management systems. This project envisages translating, localising and rolling out the existing PROMIS online service in order to deliver a cost-efficient and easy-to-use Internet based service at the service of SMEs in Europe.

The CEN Workshop Agreement, based on PROMISLingua project, will provide additional guidance on the systematic and structured use of terms and definitions implicitly or explicitly specified, both established or emerging, in various standards and regulations embedded in a multilingual environment. Among the specific aspects to be covered in this reference document is a stable terminology system that presents and applies vocabularies references for terminology management and workflow with a methodology to organise a translation service for terms and definitions.
