How to Participate

Standards Australia couldn’t do what we do without specialist knowledge.
We bring together more than 5,000 technical, business, academic, government and community experts to form technical committees.
Representing their industry, consumer associations, government, scientific or academic institutions, these committee members are nominated by organisations.
These nominating organisations are the lifeblood of Standards Australia, and we work with more than 1,200 of them.

Become a Committee Member

A technical committee will work on a few projects each year. These might include revising existing Australian Standards® and technical documents, assessing International Standards for adoption in Australia, or drafting new standards for emerging industries.

A committee consists of technical experts representing various interest groups. We refer to these stakeholder groups as nominating organisations.

Nominating organisations appoint individuals as their representatives on technical committees. The organisation can approach potential nominees or individuals can approach the organisation.

Contact one of our Stakeholder Engagement Managers to discuss participation in your industry.
