23/01/2010 ANEC Comments on AFNOR Feasibility Study on Accessibility to Tourism and Transport Services to Disabled People

Such a framework should apply also to more vulnerable consumers, such as children or older persons. This framework should be underpinned by formal standards. Moreover, ANEC stresses the need for CEN to put in place an effective strategy to ensure the balanced involvement of all relevant stakeholder groups in the development of any standards in this field, and in particular to ensure the involvement of organisations representing disabled or older persons.
