The Consumers Federation of Australia plays an important role in ensuring people’s interests are represented in the development of standards. You can influence standards by becoming a Consumers Federation of Australia representative on a Standards Australia technical committee. By getting involved you can ensure products and services meet your expectations and address everyday problems faced by ordinary people.
Everyone is invited to make public comment on draft standards and suggest new standards.

In recognition of the importance of promoting consumer involvement in standardisation, Standards Australia provides an annual grant to facilitate the participation of volunteer CFA representatives on the technical committees that are responsible for the development of Australian Standards. Consumer Action Law Centre manages the Standards Project on behalf of CFA.
