The Seconded European Standardization Expert for India (SESEI) project phase 3 is launched in March 2016. Capitalizing on the achievements of the Project SESEI 2 (March 2012- March 2016) and noting the increased activity level of India in the international standardization scene, the European Standards Organisations (ESOs), the European Commission and EFTA decided to continue with the SESEI project phase 3 (March 2016 – June 2019) in order to deepen the European and Indian cooperation in standardization issues, from policy and regulatory exchange to technical dialogue. The third phase of the Project SESEI will make the most of the work accomplished during phase 2 and strengthen the links and extensive network built over the past three years.
The overall objectives of the project are:
- to continue promoting the visibility of European standardization and promote EU/EFTA-India cooperation on standards related issues
- to facilitate cooperation between EU/EFTA and Indian decision makers, opinion setters and stakeholders in the standardization, policy and regulatory system, both at the policy making level as well as in a series of sectors identified as high priority
- to collect and analyze policy, regulatory and standardization related information and increase knowledge of the partners on developments and stakes on the Indian market.
