Standards are an invaluable worldwide resource. Globally there are well over half a million published standards. These are the products of over 1,000 recognised standards development organisations worldwide.
Standards have been around a long time. There is evidence of standards being used seven thousand years ago by the ancient civilizations of Babylon and early Egypt.
Our standardisation guides set out the policies and processes for the development of standards and other technical documents.
Our standards development activities are divided into industry sectors.
These sectors are supported by Stakeholder Engagement Managers who are available to advise and assist stakeholders.
Standards Australia represents our nation on the two major international standardising bodies, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)* and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
We co-ordinate the attendance of Australian experts at international meetings and participate in the preparation of a wide range of International Standards. We are extremely active within the international standardisation movement and a number of our senior management team members hold important voluntary offices on international standards bodies.
The Standards Australia NEXTgen Program provides emerging leaders an exciting opportunity to become involved in the national and international standardisation processes which supports Australian industry and governments.
The program provides training and direct exposure to the standards development processes and technical committees. This involves having access to shared information and collective intelligence to develop standards that support the economy, improve safety and health, national resources and improve quality of life.
Standards Awards are presented to individuals, and one committee, who have made significant contributions to standardisation and who have demonstrated outstanding service in enabling Standards Australia and accredited Standards Development Organisations (SDOs) attain their objectives.

I think creating standards is very important to create some confidence and predictability.
Especially as a emerging tech heaps of people use the same terminology and same understanding of it and standards is the best place to do that.
If we're going to build resilience reliability and reputation for this product lets standardise it.
