Could you represent consumers on a Bicycle Committee?


Expressions of interest are invited for a volunteer Consumers’ Federation of Australia (CFA) representative on a Standards Australia Technical Committee reviewing a series of bicycle and bicycle accessories standards.

CFA representatives on Standards Committees are volunteers who represent the interests of consumers, in forming and revising Australian Standards.  It’s a very practical and useful way of strengthening the consumer voice – getting involved in issues around consumer protection, product safety and product information – and more.

We are seeking a skilled volunteer to advocate for the consumer interest to be taken into account, and for the standards to include acceptable requirements for consumer protection.

Consumers’ Federation of Australia (CFA) plays an important role in ensuring consumer interests are represented in the development of Australian Standards as part of the CFA Standards Project.  Volunteer consumer representatives are expected to participate in all meetings of their committee, to participate in out of meeting electronic communication and to develop their standards through negotiation and consensus with the rest of the committee. The Committee will meet 2 times per year and representatives are reimbursed for interstate travel expenses.
