Liaisons and working relations

CEN/TC 251 is actively engaged with many other standards development organisations (formally as part of the Joint Initiative Council (JIC) in which the main global Health Informatics SDO’s participate, e.g. ISO/TC 215, HL7, IHE, SNOMED, DICOM and GS1 to name but a few). Within Europe, close collaboration has been established with HL7’s European Office and IHE Europe. It also liaises with consortia and fora to coordinate its work with other organisations that have similar goals.

CEN/TC 251 has been one of the original founding parties of the Joint Initiative Council in which all relevant SDO’s in the field of eHealth are working together.

CEN/TC 251 members are from member states standards organisations and additionally include representatives from a number of related organisations. CEN/TC 251 has established working relationships with:

  1. CENELEC through a Joint Technical Committee on Medical Devices (CEN/CLC JTC 3)
  2. European Trade Association representing the medical imaging, radiotherapy, health ICT and electromedical industries (COCIR)
  3. European Commission and its associated research and deployment projects.
