Call for Tender for one ‘Technical Project Leader’

For the research on the needs for and availability of anthropometric data of adults in the context of inclusive/gender-responsive standards

CEN, the European Committee for Standardization, is an association that brings together the National Standardization Bodies of 34 European countries (see CEN website). It provides a platform for the development of European Standards and other technical documents in relation to various kinds of products, materials, services and processes.

Correct and up-to-date anthropometric data (including physical strengths) are a crucial basis for drafting standards inclusive/gender-responsive (with regard to health and safety and also other requirements). It is, therefore, necessary to systematically collect an EU-wide broad range of anthropometric data and to provide the stakeholders, in particular the industry and the CEN (and CENELEC) technical committees, with such information.

At present there is insufficient knowledge on the existing anthropometric data and its availability (e.g. commercially available data from private providers or scientific publications) and on the specific stakeholder needs for such data. For this reason, CEN carries out, within CEN/TC 122 “Ergonomics” and in particular CEN/TC 122/WG 1 “Anthropometry” a project to obtain this information. The project will identify available data and data needs and perform a gap analysis. Based on these results draft scenarios for an anthropometric survey will be developed which can form the basis for a future project.

DIN German Institute for Standardization (Deutsches Institut für Normung e.V.) holds the secretariats of CEN/TC 122 “Ergonomics” and CEN/TC 122/WG 1 “Anthropometry” and will be responsible for the overall management and coordination of the project.

The selection of the Technical Project Leader who will carry out the main tasks of this first project in consultation with CEN/TC 122/WG 1 is subject to this call for tender.

Tenders for the Technical Project Leader shall be sent by postal mail to the secretary of CEN/TC 122/WG 1 "Anthropometry", Sebastian Lentz.
