Canadian Standards Association (CSA Group)

About the CSA, or the Canadian Standards Association

The Canadian Standards Association (CSA), established in 1919, is Canada’s official standards organisation. A non-profit, the CSA develops standards across 57 different sectors. 

The CSA is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada, which verifies that the CSA is capable of carrying out standards development and certification functions. This accreditation is based on internationally recognised criteria and procedures.

The CSA develops and maintains voluntary standards through open, consensus-based processes involving industry, government, and consumers. These standards serve as guidelines for construction, electrical, healthcare, environmental, and many other fields. In addition to publishing standards, the CSA also provides training and advisory services.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) is Canada's primary standards development organisation. CSA Group is a leader in Standards development and testing, inspection, and certification in countries including Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia. It is responsible for creating, upholding, and promoting standards for over 50 industries. 

Most standards are voluntary. Despite that, standard adherence is still beneficial to companies because it proves products have been independently tested to meet certain standards. As a voluntary non-profit organisation, the CSA collaborates with experts and stakeholders to address industry needs, ensuring consistency, reliability, and innovation in Canadian products and services.

CSA works as an independent, non-governmental organisation owned by its members. The CSA Group has more than 10,000 volunteer expert members with deep technical knowledge and expertise. These members help to develop the CSA’s standards. 

Its governance structure includes a Board of Directors and committees made up of industry representatives, government agencies, consumer groups, and academia, with major stakeholders influencing CSA's strategic direction.

The CSA exists to develop standards. Among the fifty-seven different areas of specialisation are business management and safety and performance standards, including those for electrical and electronic equipment, industrial equipment, boilers and pressure vessels, compressed gas handling appliances, environmental protection, and construction materials.

The CSA manages over 1,000 committees focused on standards development, develops more than 3,000 standards and codes, delivers training, and develops public policy frameworks.
