ILNAS

ILNAS is a public administration under the authority of the Minister of the Economy. ILNAS represents a network of competencies relating to quality, safety and conformity of products and services, and its mission is to support national competitiveness.

ILNAS as the Luxembourg’s standards body is a member of European and international standards organisations (CEN, CENELEC, ETSI, ISO, IEC and ITU-T). In this context and through the “Luxembourg Standardisation Strategy 2020-2030”, ILNAS allows and encourages the participation of the national market in the process of technical standardisation.

Among other activities, ILNAS is supporting and strengthening the education about standardisation and related research developments. In this frame, a strong collaboration between ILNAS and the University of Luxembourg was initiated in 2016, notably with the launch of the professional University certificate “Smart ICT for business innovation”, which was a first step before the creation of the Master MTECH.

Along with the technical standardisation, the digital trust is another key topic of the Master MTECH. ILNAS, through its Digital Trust Department, supervises notably various national organisations to guarantee a high level of confidence in the digital services provided in Luxembourg. On the one hand, the Digital Trust Department of ILNAS is in charge of the supervision of trust services providers and the trust services that they provide with respect to the requirements of the eIDAS Regulation. On the other hand, it is also the Luxembourg’s supervisory body for providers of digitisation or electronic archiving services (PSDC).
