The main objective of STAIR4SECURITY is to create a collaborative platform as single entry point of information on the security sector coming mostly from research activities allowing a better governance of standardisation needs in the Disaster Resilience and the CBRN-E (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives) sectors. The platform will permit a better overview of current and new projects being at, national, European, or international level; ensuring more coordination between all stakeholders and responding more efficiently and timely to the critical needs following an agreed strategic vision and identified priorities.

Besides ensuring the necessary partnering network, STAIR4SECURITY will review the necessary tools and mechanisms including the CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreement (CWA) process and the possibility of introducing a fast-track procedure to adopt market relevant CWAs or any other deliverable or reference document e.g. Technical Specification (TS) and Technical Report (TR) into a consensus standard (EN). Possibilities and conditions to include classified information in a non-consensus standard (CWA, TS, TR) will also be explored.
