CEO Report

Standards Australia hosts ISO, IEC leaders

This month Standards Australia hosted Sergio Mujica, ISO Secretary General, and Philippe Metzger, CEO of IEC on their visit to Australia.

The global standards leaders' hectic itinerary included speaking at our organisation's Centenary Gala Dinner, and sitting on panels at various forums which addressed hundreds of attendees.

They also participated in a Q&A session on World Standards Day, with Standards Australia hosting the Australian Graduate Data Network event.

At these events, they shared their knowledge about the role of standards in addressing important global issues, from climate change and technology adoption to big data.

Mr Metzger and Mr Mujica also met with Australian chairs and conveners of ISO and IEC committees and working groups. Attendees from a range of technical groups heard from the leaders of ISO and IEC about both organisations' priorities and initiatives.

And as part of the Centenary week, members of the Australian National Committee met with Mr Metzger to discuss IEC future directions, IEC's new strategy, and diversity and inclusion at IEC.

Standards Australia was honoured to host Mr Metzger and Mr Mujica, and looks forward to more collaboration in the future.
