Council for Harmonization of Electrotechnical Standardization of the Nations of the Americas (CANENA)

Overview: Founded in 1992, the Council for Harmonization of Electrotechnical Standardization of the Nations of the Americas (CANENA) facilitates and promotes the development of harmonized electrotechnical codes and standards and uniform conformity assessment methods. The ultimate objective of CANENA is to permit vendors: to build to one standard for a product for all of the Western Hemisphere, to submit the product to a conformance assessment testing laboratory in one of the countries, and, upon successful completion of the testing, to receive listings in all countries. CANENA also encourages the reduction of non-tariff trade barriers between the member countries. The scope of the standardization subject matter addressed by CANENA and its committees is electrotechnical codes and standards and conformity assessment test methods utilized in North America. CANENA Standardization Activities also include conformity assessment, compliance issues, compatibility, interchangeability, interoperability, installation codes, intellectual property and other issues in the broadest definition of standardization. There are currently more than 70 organizations and several hundred individuals involved in CANENA.
