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 associations. Some standards are voluntary. Others are enforced by legislation and are mandatory.
