Australia's agricultural industry is a key part of the country’s economy. It employs around 330,000 people and is responsible for an ever-increasing percentage of Australia’s exports, the majority of which come from food products, and include things like fish, meat and livestock, fruit, vegetables and legumes.
By streamlining processes, increasing efficiency and developing safety measures, Standards Australia helps contribute to the country’s agriculture export potential.
Current key projects include:

  • Partnering with The Commonwealth Department of Agriculture and Water Resources to actively engage with ISO to develop an International Standard for water efficiency based on AS/NZS 6400, Water Efficient Products – Rating and Labelling (WELS)
