ResiStand works with three main communities of stakeholders, namely organisations utilising standards in their crisis management and disaster resilience operations (ResiStand’s End-User Community - EUC), and standardisation bodies and organisations developing standards (ResiStand’s Standards Advisory Group - SAG). Industry and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), as well as research organisations, are the main representatives of ResiStand’s Supplier Community (SUC).
ResiStand has been gathering the opinion of the SUC experts to support the project’s objectives. A brief summary of the industry perspective on standardisation (including SMEs) is presented below. A complete report on the SUC position with regard to standardisation can be found in D4.2 (industry and SME’s) and D4.3 (research).
