A new direct distribution channel
For the first time since 2003, Standards Australia has its own direct channel to market. Having this platform is a critical element of our strategic direction put in place in 2016. A significant step forward, the Standards Australia Store is a critical piece of backbone infrastructure that will allow us to continue to drive innovation and change in our market.
Partnering with innovators to drive innovation
This year, we announced our first new partnership on the delivery of our content beyond the traditional format. Australian software provider FireMate has embedded Australian Standards within an innovative platform that aims to support fire protection specialists to work more efficiently.
Increasing our efforts, impact and partnerships globally
With an increasing focus on the good use of standards nationally, regionally,and globally, we have expanded our engagement and advocacy work substantially over the last 12 months. Our relationships with Australian industry and government have been critical to us, and to our partners, in building a better understanding of how international standards impact national and international policy agendas.
