Critical and Emerging Technologies (CET) are current and emerging technologies with the capacity to significantly enhance a country’s economic success, security, and social cohesion. This includes Artificial Intelligence, Smart Cities, Advanced Manufacturing, and Standards and Statecraft. 

Standards for CET is an emerging field and is central to the safety, security and wellbeing of Australia and our international and regional partners. As a result, a significant and targeted effort is needed to prioritise activity and build CET capability in the ASEAN region.
Standards Australia, supported by the Australian Government, hosted a four-day event in October 2021 on the theme of Incubating Capacity for Critical and Emerging Technology Standards.

The goal of the event was to build knowledge and practical skills to accelerate development, adoption and use of recognised international standards for CET wthin ASEAN.
