standard adopted by a European standardisation organisation

Context: Info

'European Standardization plays an important role in the development and consolidation of the European Single Market. The fact that each European Standard is recognized across the whole of Europe, and automatically becomes the national standard in 33 European countries, makes it much easier for businesses to sell their goods or services to customers throughout the European Single Market.'
