On 1 January 2018 the "Austrian Standards Institute" changed its name to:
Austrian Standards International – Standardization and Innovation
This is a strong signal for the future. What started almost 100 years ago as the "Österreichischer Normenausschuss für Industrie und Gewerbe" (Austrian Standardization Committee for Industry and Commerce) is an important international hub for innovative know-how today:
That is reflected by the new name. The future orientation of Austrian Standards is outlined by the term "innovation". We are open to new approaches in standards development (e.g. co-Creation and open innovation), to the subjects of the future (e.g. IoT, Industry 4.0 and blockchains), to new co-operation and partnerships.
Our connected world needs networked co-operation more than ever. We invite you: Let us develop together solutions for Austria and the world!
