5 5 Survey on SMEs participation at national level 2010: 18 answered, only 6 NSOs sent accurate data out of 30; 2011: 4 NSOs contributed.

6 6 NORMAPME SME – Cases: Tourism: Can every family hotel afford to employ an environmental engineer to comply with the standard? Doors and windows: Cost of tests between 5000 and per window type is an unbearable financial burden for SMEs. eHealth: Fora and consortia specifications should be recognised but SMEs have to play a role proportionate to their global weight.

7 7 Some more cases: Roofing: With the help of N. international and European representatives of crafts or SMEs (such as IFD) have more possibilities to participate in TC activities. Lifts: Standards are used by some multinational companies to push SMEs out of the market. Food machinery: If the NORMAPME expert had not reacted, bars and restaurants would have been at the mercy of only one supplier.
