Consumers’ Federation of Australia (CFA) plays an important role in ensuring peoples interests are represented in the development of standards. You can influence standards by becoming a CFA 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. See how standards affect our lives: Protecting the planet with standards – World Standards Day 2020.
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.
What are Standards, and how do they affect me?
CFA regularly seeks skilled volunteers to represent CFA on Standards Australia Technical Committees. If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a CFA standards representative, please contact CFA’s Standards Coordinator at email@example.com and/or register your interest.
