The Stand4All project is a response to a call for tenders by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities. Its goal is to increase the use of CEN/CENELEC Guide 6, which contains guidance on the inclusion of the needs of elderly persons and persons with disabilities during the standards development process. To reach this goal, the project consortium has developed and delivered training on standardisation in several locations in Europe and for two types of audience: persons with disabilities and members of standardisation committees. The training for persons with disabilities is meant to increase their effective participation in the standardisation process. The training for committee members is meant to increase their awareness and knowledge of accessibility issues faced by persons with disabilities.
