The standardization system, which “has always been sensitive to environmental issues,” intends to contribute to promoting the circular economy. This is the reason why the Italian Organization for Standardization (UNI) has established a new technical commission UNI/CT 057 “ Circular Economy,” the first meeting of which was held on April 11.
A message explains that UNI/CT 057 will have the task to develop requirements, reference frameworks, guidelines and support regulatory instruments for the circular economy projects.
The meeting of April 11 was attended by over 40 representatives of different types of stakeholders, including those of the MoED, Confindustria (Italian Employers' Federation), Enea, GGIL, CISL, University of Brescia, RUS – the Network of Universities for Sustainable Development, IUAV University of Venice, ASviS-Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development, Accredia and numerous companies and entities associated with UNI.
Commission UNI/CT 057 will meet on May 10 again in order to appoint president and prepare the national position for the ISO reunion scheduled to take place in Saint-Denis, France on May 20-22. At international level the secretariat of the technical committee ISO/TC 323 “Circular Economy” - “ where Italy is going to participate actively” – is actually managed by French standardization body Afnor.
