CEN (European Committee for Standardization) & The First European CBRNE Standard

European standardisation commission – CEN – and its Technical committee TC 391 ‘Societal and citizen security’ has reinforced its activities in recent years and pursued the development and publication of the new standards on CBRNE glossary containing crucial information on training for security professionals on CBRNE (Chemical Biological, radiological Nuclear and Explosives) and guidelines for handling crowds during major events. The team features members from all EU 27 member states, being Training Manager Toni Leikas Finland’s official representative and expert for this project.

The publication of the glossary on CBRN-E (European CBRNE glossary, EN 17173:2020) will be one of the major achievements of TC/391. Inspired by the glossary of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC), this glossary includes a set of around 600 terms and definitions to be used by security professionals when responding to emerging threats related to the management of dangerous substances.
