The situation of an individual person, who is interested in participating in standardisation activities is difficult. In general there will be a lack of information, a lack of support and a lack of funding. The USEM concept was developed to guide anyone interested in the standardisation process. There are six principles which will be used to highlight all aspects of user participation. The recommendations for individual users focus mainly on practical issues and advice to enable individuals to make valuable contributions to the process.
