Our network

Standardization is always team work. Just like the experts contributing to the development of standards, Austrian Standards forms part of diverse networks.

These include the European standardization organizations CEN, CENELEC and ETSI as well as the international standardization bodies ISO, IEC and ITU.

Of course, these networks also relate to the individual national organizations developing standards and rules in Austria and abroad. Additionally, they comprise public institutions, professional organizations, NGOs and EU institutions or agencies of the United Nations ­– in short, all persons and organizations having a vital interest in common standards.
