EU privacy seals project
Comparison with other EU certification schemes : final report study deliverable 3.4 - Study
This report identifies and analyses key EU certification schemes in select sectors such as: network and information security, general product compliance, the environment, financial auditing and accounting, entertainment, the food industry and the telecommunications sectors and analyses them according to a standard set of criteria in relation to their background, development, practical set-up, legislative mandate (e.g., relevant directives, rules, links to legal obligations), main concerns and challenges. This identification and analysis will clarify the key principles on which such EU... certification schemes are awarded and operate, and will help us draw lessons for an EU-wide privacy certification scheme.
