All of these standards are necessary for the business sector in order for it to become more competitive and to operate in other countries of the world. A standard is a document which defines the requirements for a product, material, component, system or a special service, while offering technical details/specifications for a particular method or procedure. As such, they facilitate international trade and ensure compliance and interaction of components, products and services.
On the other hand, these standards also benefit consumers, because a product that meets these standards, is safe and has a high quality. Meanwhile, according to the data issued by the General Standardization Office, in total, Albanian businesses have adopted 25.395 European standards, of which 3.069 belong to ETSI, 6.620 belong to CENELEC, 15.706 belong to CEN and 4984 international standards belong to ISO & IEC.
