World Standards Day is held on 14 October each year and has been recognised worldwide since 1970; it raises awareness and recognises the achievements and efforts of the thousands of experts who share their know-how and expertise in voluntary international standards setting.  Australian consumers can be assured that the products and systems they use are safe and reliable thanks to an objective, rigorous set of standards.

Consumers SA is a long-standing member of the Consumers Federation of Australia (CFA).  The Federation takes the opportunity of World Standards Day each year to thank all CFA Standards representatives for their contribution to the range of local Technical Committees and International committees.

CFA provides volunteer representatives on over 50 Standards Australia Technical Committees as part of the CFA Standards Project.  Anyone interested in finding out more about the Project or becoming a volunteer CFA Standards Representative should contact the Standards Coordinator at
