Property: Standards

What is a standard?

"Standards are published documents setting 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" (Standards Australia).

Standards are developed by various bodies, agencies, trade and professional association. Some standards are voluntary. Others are enforced by legislation - mandatory.
