Currently standards constitute for a company a strategic reference tool: for the manufacturing of its products, but also for its purchasing processes, its internal organization, the satisfaction of its customers, the elaboration of its commercial contracts, etc.

Longstanding BCRC has been involved in the standardization process, its activities in this field rest on three main pillars:

  • Conducting pre-standardization research projects
  • Managing belgian standardization committees as Sector Operator
  • Raising awareness about standards and their use through its two Standards-Cells:
   Standards-Cell Ceramic and Glass
   Standards-Cell Nanomaterials (in collaboration with Sirris)

The standardization actions of BCRC are supported by the FPS Economy, S.M.E.s, Self-Employed and Energy and by the Bureau for Standardization.
