Standards Explained

What is a Standard?

Standards are documents setting out specifications, procedures and guidelines. They are designed to ensure products, services and systems are safe, reliable and consistent.

They are based on industrial, scientific and consumer experience and are regularly reviewed to ensure they keep pace with new technologies.
They cover everything from consumer products and services, construction, engineering, business, information technology, human services to energy and water utilities, the environment and much more.
