Frequently Asked Questions

  Read on to find out more about Standards Australia.  

Standards Australia is the principal standards body in Australia. As an independent, not-for-profit, non-governmental standards organisation, Standards Australia develops safety standards, handbooks, technical specifications, publications, resources, and solutions. 

The critical work Standards Australia performs improves Australia’s international competitiveness and economic efficiency by developing, maintaining, and promoting Australian Standards. It also contributes to ensuring safe and sustainable environments for all Australians. Standards Australia is a member of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) and is Australia’s representative.

Standards Australia forms technical committees comprising stakeholders from business, government, community, academia, industry, and consumers. Using a consensus process, Standards Australia facilitates the committees to develop safety standards in Australia for everyone’s benefit.

Standards Australia is the owner and creator of Australian standards. As a not-for-profit, independent, non-government entity, it creates and maintains standards across various public, private and community stakeholders. Some of the industries that Standards Australia is responsible for include:

  • Building and construction
  • Dangerous goods protection
  • Electrical engineering
  • Electrical wires and cables.
  • Occupational health and safety
  • Playground equipment
  • Quality management
  • Quality assurance
  • Timber structures.

Standards Australia publishes voluntary standards that State and Commonwealth governments can refer to in their legislation. If this happens, the safety standards become mandatory.

Standards Australia is the leading non-governmental, independent, not-for-profit standards organisation. They are specialists in developing and adopting internationally aligned standards in Australia. Standards Australia works across many industries with various stakeholders to ensure Australian industries maintain safety, quality, and efficiency standards.

Standards Australia's purpose includes:
