In two weeks on 12 October, Standards Australia will celebrate its centenary. For 100 years committees of industry professionals and Standards Australia staff have worked together to create standards that Australians benefit from every day.
Standards Australia liaise closely with equivalent associations across the world within ISO, the International Organization for Standardization. Australian experts have a long history of volunteering their time to establish and maintain international standards as well as standards for their country.
One of the oldest technical committees TC42 Photography began in 1947 and there are now over 2,000 committees covering a diverse range of industries. For 20 years I’ve contributed to photography standards and 10 of those years with ISO and Standards Australia.
Happy Birthday Standards Australia!
