Standards Australia

Standards Australia is the nation’s peak non-government, not-for-profit standards organisation.

As representatives of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), we are also specialists in the development and adoption of internationally-aligned standards in Australia.

Our Purpose

  • Standards development: Offering stakeholders from a variety of sectors a range of pathways to develop or update new or existing standards.
  • International participation: Participating in the development and adoption of a wide range of International Standards.
  • Accreditation of standards development organisations: Assessing and approving other organisations to develop Australian Standards®.

For every new standard, we bring together key parties and stakeholders to form a technical committee. These committees collaborate to develop standards, which are of value to Australia, its businesses, and its people. The benefits of our work are clear; with stronger standards in place, Australia can enjoy greater economic efficiency and increased prominence on the international stage. Robust standards also help support our local communities by building a safer, more sustainable environment.

Although we develop standards, we are not responsible for enforcing, regulating or certifying compliance with those standards.
