Standards Australia supporting Australian participation in the development of international standards in emerging sectors

Standards Australia supports Australian participation in the development of international standards across all sectors of the economy, including services. Standards Australia is particularly focused on identifying priority areas for increased Australian participation and supporting industry experts to participate on international standards committees and mirror committees in emerging sectors like digital and critical technology, and critical minerals.

Australian participation in the development of international standards allows Australian industry experts to shape trajectories and advance the values and interests of Australian consumers and industry. Standards Australia is ensuring the Australian voice is heard by mapping Australia’s current participation across committees of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and engaging with industry and Government to identify new and emerging opportunities for Australian expert participation.
