The Australian Summer is an iconic part of the Aussie lifestyle
but did you know that some of our favourite summer pastimes include a range of
standards designed to keep us safe? They affect everything from the fans
keeping you cool to your coolest pair of sunnies, read more here.
Consumers’ Federation of
Australia (CFA) regularly seeks skilled volunteers to
be consumer representatives on Standards Australia Technical Committees as part
of the Standards Project. Their role is to advocate
for the consumer interest to be taken into account, and for the standard to
include acceptable requirements for consumer protection, see more here.
CFA plays an important role in
ensuring consumer interests are represented in the development of standards.
Standards are published documents setting out specifications and procedures
designed to ensure products, services and systems are safe, reliable and
perform the way they were intended to. Find out more here.
