# CEN and ISO have aligned their work

Earlier this year, CEN adopted the ISO 27269 International Patient Summary standard as a European standard. Rather than the original EN 17269, the standard in Europe will now be referred to as the EN ISO 27269:2022 . It is fully equivalent to ISO 27269:2021 and any future revisions will be carried out jointly between ISO and CEN. We have changed the descriptions on the ISO and EN standards accordingly in the IPS Standards and Specifications section.
