For several years SČS closely cooperates with ÚNMZ in the topics related to ISO COPOLCO abd SČS coordinates for ÚNMZ consumer cooperation concerning ISO COPOLCO. ÚNMZ pays for the task. SČS several times represented the Czech Republic on plenary sessions of ISO COPOLCO.
SČS is represented in the Working Group ISO COPOLCO on Consumer Participation in Standardization.
SČS is contracted by ÚNMZ to ensure national work for ISO TC 243 Product Safety.
