Australia is one of world's largest producers of natural resources, such as coal, uranium, iron ore, nickel, bauxite, gold, lead, copper, zinc, mineral sands and diamonds.
In 2015, the sector accounted for approximately 9% of the Australian economy. Today, it accounts for over 50% of all goods and services produced in the country. Mining supports numerous other industries and sectors, and employs hundreds of thousands of Australians.
Standards Australia works with Australian stakeholders to develop Australian and International standards that are designed to improve efficiencies and increase international trade competitiveness and business performance.
