European standards amounts of growth also contributed to the rise of consumer safety, which are submitted to increasing needs for standardization activities. The accessibility requirements are the basis for standardization activities. Moreover, the European standardization main principles are based on national liazorman and private-public cooperation, ensuring the proper representation of consumers in standardization activities and furnishing safe products in European market.
