Regular Team of Specialists meeting

The Team of Specialists on Gender-Responsive Standards (GRS) of WP.6 holds bi-monthly meetings to progress its work agenda and encourage building a network of gender focal points working on gender-responsive standards. The GRS encourages the uptake of guidance such as the Recommendation U on Gender-Responsive Standards and the Guidelines on Developing Gender-Responsive Standards and Standards Development. It develops further guidance to help standards development organizations to effectively roll out gender-responsive standards. More information on this group is available on the team’s web page.

All experts are welcome to join these meetings.

During this meeting we are happy to welcome a guest speaker, Frauke Hoss of the European Commission who will present the recent “EU 2024 Study on inclusiveness of anthropometrics in European harmonised standards”.
