Fraunhofer INT – International and interinstitutional crisis and disaster management: Available for Public Review and Commenting

The objective of this CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) is enabling a respondent to a crisis to exchange information across jurisdictions, organisations and borders to other responders, while maintain full control of the information and while using their own terminology and symbology.

Mapping icons and terminologies allows actors that use different icons and terminology to ‘translate’ the received information into the terminology and symbology it usually uses and thus to understand the information the owner shared. The proposed CWA is of interest to all European countries whose crisis responders do or plan to collaborate internationally or inter-institutionally.

The CEN Workshop was kicked-off on 01 March 2022.

The CWA is now ready for public consultation. The consultation period ends on 28 April 2023.

Comments on the CWA are to be submitted by 28 April 2023 to using the commenting form below.
