Summer, standards and how they relate to you

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.
