Australian Standard

An Australian Standard is a document that sets out specifications and procedures designed to ensure products, services and systems are safe, reliable and consistently perform the way they were intended to. They establish a common language which defines quality and safety criteria.

These documents are practical and don’t set impossible goals. They are based on sound industrial, scientific and consumer experience and are constantly 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.

Each standard is developed by a committee made up of technical, business, academia, government and community experts who come together to debate how a product or system should perform and how it should be made. Before finalisation, every standard is subject to public comment to ensure everyone with an interest in the subject has the opportunity to input.

Australian Standards are developed by Standards Australia Limited and sold and distributed worldwide by SAI Global Limited.
