A broader range of standards for use in the Australian market has been opened up following the signing of an agreement between Standards Australia and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
Standards Australia already has a well-established presence at the ISO (International Organisation of Standardisation) and the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and with other standards development organisations. This new agreement will add to the existing standards from which Australian stakeholders can draw in new and traditional areas of technology.
The IEEE develops standards in ICT, batteries, consumer electronics, nanotechnology, transportation, smart grids, nuclear power, software systems, as well as healthcare IT and computer technology. All of which are now more readily available to the Australian community as a result of this agreement.
