Why delegates attended

At the event delegates got the opportunity to hear from both NSAI’s and BSI's Directors of Standards and meet committee members from both national standards bodies.

Whether new to standardisation or had been involved already this is an opportunity for delegates to network with standards committee members from NSAI and BSI.  Committee members are industry experts who drive all aspects of the standard development process, from deciding whether a new standard is needed to defining all the technical content.

Getting involved in this process can bring significant advantages to your business. For example by:

  • Giving early access to information that could shape the market in the future

  • Giving your company a voice in the development of standards

  • Helping to keep market access open

  • Getting involved in standards development brings your concerns and needs to bear on a process that will affect you in the future.
