25 SEM08-09 25 Standstill, national transposition and withdrawal ETSI starts work on an EN… National Standards Organisations (NSOs) and ETSI Members are required to stop any national standards work that could prejudice that EN ("Standstill") ETSI publishes the EN… NSOs are required to adopt the EN at national level… ("Transposition") …and to withdraw any conflicting national standards ("Withdrawal") A few more definitions

26 SEM08-09 26 The obligation accepted by the NSOs and the members of ETSI not to undertake any national standardization activity which could prejudice the preparation of an EN (telecommunications series) and, for the NSOs, not to publish a new or revised standard which is not completely in line with an existing EN (telecommunications series). Standstill applies to an individual work item leading to an EN (…) and accepted by the General Assembly, with a precise scope and target date. It does not apply to areas or programmes of work as such. Standstill - RoP Article 13.3

27 SEM08-09 27 National transposition The NSOs shall take measures to ensure the visibility of EN (telecommunications series) at national level, either by publication of an identical text, or by endorsement (that is, by publication of an endorsement sheet or by announcement in an official journal) within a short time of their adoption according to Article 13.5. In the case of endorsement, it shall be stated that the EN (…) has been approved together with the number, title and date of the EN (…), and information on where copies of the text may be obtained. A copy of the endorsement sheet or announcement shall be sent to the ETSI Secretariat. ENs (telecommunications series) thus published or endorsed shall have the status of national standards. - RoP Article 13.7

28 SEM08-09 28 National withdrawal When an EN (telecommunications series) has been approved and adopted […] on a specific matter, then on an agreed date set by the General Assembly, the NSOs shall ensure that all conflicting national standards on that specific matter are withdrawn. - RoP Article 13.7
