World Standards Day: Shared Vision for a Better World

Shared Vision for a Better World Standards for SDGs World Standards Day: 14 October IEC, ISO, ITU

Saturday October 14th is World Standards Day, a time to acknowledge and celebrate the work of the thousands of people around the world who dedicate their time and effort into creating technical voluntary standards. This year’s theme for World Standards Day is ‘a shared vision for a better world’, CFA’s Standards Project Manager, Regina Godfredson, has prepared a short piece for the occasion.

Shared vision for a better world: incorporating UN Sustainable Development Goal 3 – Envision a world that is better, fairer, and more sustainable, prioritizing the well-being and health of all – find out more here.

Standards offer practical solutions we can all stand behind, by using standards, you become a part of the solution.  World Standards Day takes place every year on the 14th of October and offers the opportunity to increase understanding of the importance of standardisation.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent our shared vision for peace and prosperity, for people and planet. Every SDG is a call for action, but we can only get there if we work together.

CFA engages with these issues by supporting representatives to participate on Standards Australia technical committees as part of the CFA Standards Project. Standards make the world a better place and CFA representatives ensure the impact on consumers is always a central part of committee considerations. You can view a standard free of charge in the Standards Australia Reader Room which provides limited access i.e. ability to view three (3) unique standards in one calendar year for a 24 hr period, find out how to access here.
