AENOR INTERNACIONAL was established as a company in January 2017. At that time, the Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification, created in 1986, split into two organisations; on the one hand, the Spanish Association for Standardisation - UNE, the body legally responsible for developing standardisation in Spain, which also carries out cooperative activities. And on the other, AENOR INTERNACIONAL, a knowledge management company that helps rectify competitiveness gaps via conformity assessment (certification, verification, validation, inspection, and testing), training, and information solutions. AENOR INTERNACIONAL is a UNE company.
