NSAI is improving the opportunities for members of the public and business community to engage in the national standardization process.
During the public consultation phase, a period of time for comments, notified in the public press or through alerts from the Your Standards, Your Say site, NSAI will make available the full draft versions of indigenous Irish Standards, CEN European Standards and eventually CENELEC European Standards and International Standards, for public review and comment.
NSAI has made each draft available through the Your Standards, Your Say system. Each draft is available for public comment for a set period.
All comments received during this period will be considered by the relevant Technical body provided they do not contain improper language or marketing. This facility is only intended for Irish residents who commit to giving constructive and professional feedback on the drafts.
Benefits of using Your Standards, Your Say
By accessing the Your Standards, Your Say you can:
- Search draft standards by name, subject matter or committee
- View and comment on new standards
Submission of your comments to Your Standards, Your Say will greatly assist the work of NSAI in achieving a consensus approach, which is at the heart of the standards process and also ease their incorporation into the official Irish point of view.
How to Login and comment
Draft standards documents are made available in order to gather comments from as wide an audience as possible. You will be able to read the full draft clause by clause and leave comments, suggestions about its content and propose changes which we may use in the final Irish Standard.
