On 13 September 2017 the Commission issued a proposal for a regulation on ENISA, the "EU Cybersecurity Agency", and on Information and Communication Technology cybersecurity certification (''Cybersecurity Act'').

Certification plays a critical role in increasing trust and security in products and services that are crucial for the digital single market. At the moment, a number of different security certification schemes for ICT products exist in the EU. Without a common framework for EU-wide valid cybersecurity certificates, there is an increasing risk of fragmentation and barriers in the single market.
