A harmonised standard is a European standard developed by a recognised European Standards Organisation: CEN, CENELEC, or ETSI.
MitoPedia concepts: MitoFit Quality Control System
A Harmonized standard is created following a request from the European Commission to one of these organisations. Manufacturers, other economic operators, or conformity assessment bodies can use harmonised standards to demonstrate that products, services, or processes comply with relevant EU legislation. The use of these standards remains voluntary. Manufacturers, other economic operators, or conformity assessment bodies are free to choose another technical solution to demonstrate compliance with the mandatory legal requirements.
