Standardisation

GIMELEC leads the standardisation work of the Alliance for the Industry of the Future.

The objective is to promote, at international level, a reference framework capable of hosting the various national initiatives. Active, constructive cooperation with Germany and Italy has made it possible to share this strategy. This is demonstrated by their co-leadership of the Standard Manufacturing Map project within ISO/IEC. Interoperability of machines and systems is therefore guaranteed at the normative level.
