IM-SAFE creates a pan-European Community of Practice (CoP), representing broad range of stakeholders and covering all regions in Europe. The Steering Committee of the national/regional CoP created in Benelux, DACH, Nordic, Central and Eastern Europe, and Southern Europe / Mediterranean form a backbone of the pan-European IM-SAFE CoP Forum.
IM-SAFE focuses on the key stakeholders (influential for political and industrial support and decision-making regarding new standardisation). They will also be affected by the new standards in monitoring and maintenance. In order to actively involve all important stakeholders and experts in the process from preparing the mandate to CEN until the roll-out and adoption of the new standards by governments and industries, IM-SAFE establishes two stakeholder groups : Community of Practice (CoP) and Standardisation Advisory Group.
