Developing Standards

Standards Australia develops internationally aligned Australian Standards® in the national interest through a process of consensus.

We are also responsible for ensuring Australia’s viewpoint is heard and considered in the development of International Standards, and their subsequent adoption as Australian Standards®.

The standards development process is based on three internationally recognised principles:

  • Openness and transparency
  • Consensus
  • Balance of representation
