Identification of main Topics of interest for SMEs

Small Business Standards (SBS), the European associations representing SMEs in European and international standardisation, is currently carrying out a study to identify key areas of standardisation for SMEs.
The number of standards developed or revised each year is constantly increasing, at the same time SMEs are active in a big variety of sectors.
By contributing to this questionnaire you are helping SBS to identify key areas of relevance and strategic importance to SMEs from the standardisation point of view so that SBS can concentrate its efforts on these areas in the future.

This questionnaire is addressed to companies (SMEs).

The purpose of this questionnaire is to identify strategic standardisation topics, based on your experience and opinions. In addition, to confirm the criteria to be used to prioritise sectors of particular incidence for SMEs (being aware that SMEs are mostly present in all sectors).  
You are kindly requested to identify yourself in the questionnaire, to understand the origin of the comments, but answers will be treated in an aggregated and confidential way.
