This CEN Workshop is under development and specifies the requirements for acquiring digital information from victims during search and rescue (SAR) operations. Furthermore, it establishes requirements of digital triaging during a search and rescue mission regarding the categories of safety, usability, data protection, security and system compatibility.
The CWA is under development and intended to be used by Search and Rescue equipment manufacturers and developers. It is not primarily intended to be used by first responders, although the user community benefits from the relevant guidelines to be put in place.
The CEN Workshop was kicked-off on 14 March 2022.
The CWA is now ready for public consultation. The consultation period ends on 2 March 2023!
