Opportunity to review ISO Guide 82:2019 (Ed 2) Guidelines for addressing sustainability in standards

ISO Guide 82:209 (Ed 2) Guidelines for addressing sustainability in standards is undergoing a systematic review to ensure it remains up to date. Standards Australia is seeking input from Australian stakeholders on whether the standard should be revised, reconfirmed, or withdrawn (feedback is requested by 19 May 2023).
The document provides guidance to standards developers on how to take account of sustainability in the drafting, revision and updating of ISO standards and similar deliverables. It outlines a methodology that ISO standards developers can use to develop their own approach to addressing sustainability on a subject-specific basis.
Standards Australia will consider all feedback received from stakeholders when forming Australia’s position on the systematic review. If you are interested in providing feedback, please send an email to for more information.
