Marketing Text A document setting out the benefits of standardisation to the target group and ultimate beneficiaries.
The report established the consensus position that the benefits to all Guide Dog organisations of adopting a standards-based approach were clear. This view was supported by CEN at the CEN Workshop Agreement initial meeting which emphasised the nature of private standards versus public ones.
The document provided a strategic focus for the partners and informs others who will participated in the CENWA activities to develop a European Standard form of training for guide dog instructors. It sets out the gains to blind and partially sighted people and places these within the context of Europe-wide activities on issues such as access to goods and services etc.
Target group Guide Dog users, providers and trainers
