Paris - 17 June, 2014 European Defence Agency
EDA will host a conference today, June 17, at EUROSATORY 2014 to give participants the chance to learn more about the European Defence Standards Reference System (EDSTAR).
The conference, which takes place at 14.30, includes speakers from the EDA, the French Defence Standardisation office, and representatives from industry. The EDSTAR platform is a portal on the EDA website. It is designed to assist governmental organisations and the defence industry to help them identify and select the best practice standards to apply during the procurement of defence materiel. Since its creation in 2011, it has grown to contain around 2,000 references to standards and standard-like specifications.
The conference will give more details on how EDSTAR works in practice and how governments and industry can make best use of the system.
