EN norms set by the Committee for European Norms (CEN)


Explanation:
EN = European Norm
CEN = Committee for European Norms (also CEN in English) as in:
http://www.pipesgroup.co.uk/press3.htm
http://www.ivv.fhg.de/gf6/gf6_e.html
http://www.izocam.com.tr/english/services/measurement.html

I´ve also found CEN as:European Committee for Standardization in http://www.inst-informatica.pt/v20/ibst/organiza/cen.htm
but I´d use the first option

Godd luck!! :)

Commission européenne de normalisation


Explanation:
Leave this in French. This is its one and only name! Here here an excerpt from an "Abbreviations 1. Worldwide organizations" Website:

"EUTELSAT European Telecommunication Satellite Organization

CEN Commission européenne de normalisation

CENELEC Commission européenne de normalisation des électrotechniques

NATO North Atlantic Treaty Organization

ARFA Allied Radio Frequency Agency "

All the Websites I found listed, doing both an "English-only" Google search and one for all languages, gave only the French as an expansion of "CEN," so there really doesn't appear to be any other name for the organization. I've inserted the Google search results URL, below.

Note the correct spelling...




    English only: www.google.com/search?as_q=&num=10&btnG=Google+Search&as_oq=&as_epq=Commission+Europ%E9enne+de+Nor
