Heroic standards

SDAC communique

The Standards Development & Accreditation Committee (SDAC) is a Committee of the Standards Australia Board. The committee assists us to fulfill our responsibilities as Australia’s peak national standards body, and meets regularly to discuss the wide range of matters relating to standards development and accreditation work.
Often unseen, SDAC has been referred to by many as the engine room of Standards Australia, powering our contributors to get things done. 
As a new initiative, a communique of SDAC meetings will be made available to stakeholders. The goal is to provide a direct insight into the discussions and recommendations of the committee and reflects our commitment to lead with transparency and include stakeholders in our processes.
You can access the SDAC communique and further details on SDAC and its members on our website.
