Here is the answer from the European Commission:
The question refers to an ongoing decision-making process at the International Standards Organisation (ISO) which is very controversial as a result of the strongly held positions of different stakeholders.
The Commission is aware that irregularities regarding decision-making at both national and international levels have been reported in the media. However, the Commission is not directly involved either in the process or in the governance of ISO, and is therefore not in a position to undertake a verification of alleged improper behaviour.
ISO is an independent international standards organisation. The responsibility for the proper functioning of ISO is primarily with its members, the national standards bodies, and it is for them to verify the reported irregularities and to consider a possible follow-up.
Generally, the corrrect functioning of international standardisation is important for the EU standardisation policy. Therefore the Commission encourages ISO and the other recognised standards bodies to respect the World Trade Organisation principles of international standardisation, namely transparency, openness, inclusiveness, impartiality and consensus, effectiveness, relevance and coherence.
The Commision expects ISO and its members to fully implement these principles in their decision-making processes. Through the agreement for cooperation between the European Standards Organisations and the Commission, European national standards bodies are also expected to respect the same principles.
The Commission is committed to ensuring competition based upon merit . In this regard, it is important that standard-setting processes are subject to open and transparent procedures, as outlined in paragraphs 159-178 of the Commission's Guidelines on the applicability of Article 81 of the EC Treaty to horizontal cooperation agreements(1).
And the answer in Portuguese from the Presidency of the Council of Ministers:
A presente resposta, que foi elaborada pela Presidência e não vincula o Conselho nem os Estados–Membros, não foi apresentada oralmente durante o período de perguntas dirigidas ao Conselho da sessão do Parlamento Europeu de Setembro II de 2007, em Estrasburgo.
A Organização Internacional de Normalização (ISO) é uma organização não governamental, actualmente constituída por organismos de normalização de 157 países.
A União Europeia não é nem pode ser membro da ISO, embora todos os Estados-Membros tenham diferentes tipos de participação nas actividades dessa organização (na qualidade de organismos membros ou de membros correspondentes).
Dado que não existem delegações dos Estados-Membros da UE, seria muito difícil pedir aos organismos nacionais de normalização para coordenarem as suas posições.
No âmbito da avaliação de impacto prévia à apresentação de uma nova proposta legislativa, a Comissão avalia as consequências de qualquer política de normalização, especialmente se for susceptível de impedir a livre concorrência.
Não compete ao Conselho impor sanções por comportamentos anti-concorrenciais. É à Comissão que o n.º 2 do artigo 85.º do Tratado CE atribui competências para tal.
Which gives with google automatic translation (if there is a portuguese reader reading, please make your own translation as a comment):
This response, which was prepared by the Presidency and not binding on the Council nor the Member States, it was not presented orally during the questions to the Council's session of Parliament on September II, 2007 in Strasbourg.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a non-governmental organization, currently consisting of the standards bodies of 157 countries.
The European Union is not and can not be a member of ISO, but all Member States have different types of participation in the activities of this organization (as members of organizations or members correspondents).
Since there are delegations of the EU member states, it would be very difficult to ask the national standardization bodies to coordinate their positions.
As part of the impact assessment prior to the presentation of a new legislative proposal, the Commission assesses the consequences of any policy standards, especially if it is likely to prevent free competition.
There is for the Council to impose sanctions for anti-competitive behavior. It is the Commission to paragraph 2 of Article 85. TEC gives powers to do so.
