Certifications are vital in ensuring quality, safety, and compliance within our industry. 

I am dedicated to adhering to all relevant rules and regulations, and I strive to exceed these standards whenever possible. My certifications underscore my commitment to integrity in all operations.

Proper agreements on products, methods, and services are crucial, and when it comes to safety, they are absolutely vital. Consider the safety of toys, the fire safety of decorations, and counterterrorism measures. Widely supported agreements enable international trade, foster innovation, enhance safety, improve efficiency, and promote sustainability.

At NEN, the Royal Netherlands Standardization Institute, we connect parties and stakeholders to ensure they reach consensus on standards and guidelines. We facilitate this process through national and international standards committees.

NEN manages over 31,000 standards, including international (ISO, IEC), European (EN), and national (NEN) standards accepted in the Netherlands. With over 800 active standards committees and more than 5,000 committee members, we ensure proper management of this extensive standards collection. Coordinating national, European, and international standards committees requires a high-quality infrastructure, which NEN proudly maintains.
