Paul Galbraith, UK manager for standards and certification at Schneider Electric, has been awarded by Cenelec for his continued work with the committee.

Cenelec prepares voluntary electrotechnical standards for electrical and electronic goods and services, and after having spent six years as Cenelec's chairman for subcommittee 64B – Electrical installations and protection against electric shock: protection against thermal effects – Galbraith was honoured along with six other technical experts from across Europe. Following the award ceremony was a technical body seminar, which allowed 50 of the industry's experts to share and exchange information on the latest developments and trends.

Galbraith said: "I'm thrilled to have been recognised by Cenelec for my time as subcommittee chairman. Each member of the committee plays a vital role in shaping a single European market for electrical goods and services, as well as encouraging technological development, but to be chosen in this way for my continued work has been a real honour."

Cenelec is the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization and works with 15,000 technical experts from 30 European countries. Its mission is to prepare voluntary electrotechnical standards that help develop the single European market for electrical and electronic goods and services, removing barriers to trade, creating new markets and cutting compliance costs, while helping to ensure common levels of safety across Europe.
