Greater choice of global standards to benefit Australia

March 1, 2019

Statements

A broader range of standards for use in the Australian market has been opened up following the signing of an agreement between Standards Australia and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

Standards Australia already has a strong, well-established presence at the International Organisation of Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and with other standards development organisations.  This new agreement will add to the existing standards from which Australian stakeholders can draw in new and traditional areas of technology.

The IEEE develops standards in batteries, consumer electronics, nanotechnology, transportation, smart grids, nuclear power, software systems, as well as healthcare IT and computer technology. All of which are now more readily available to the Australian community as a result of this agreement.

“An agreement of this nature has incredible potential to open up international opportunities for Australian organisations,” said Mr Adrian O’Connell, General Manager - International at Standards Australia. “This type of agreement is perfectly timed given the transformative technologies we are seeing in nearly every sector of the global economy.”
