CEN/TC304 was established in 1992 by the European Committee for Standardization (Comité
Européen de Normalisation, CEN) with the following scope:

The work will be in the areas of the identification, manipulation and coded representation of character data and in its input, interchange and rendition by electronic means.
The work includes other localization-aspects of Information and Communication Technology, such as string representations reflecting date and time conventions, currency notations and other cultural aspects of IT in Europe.
