Shaping Standards

Push forward innovations and get ready for the future

The development of standards is open to all. They are continuously developed and adjusted to changing requirements. Thus, open innovation and co-creation have always been practiced at Austrian Standards.


What does this mean for you?

Your ideas, your interest, and the exchange of all companies involved in the process make standards come alive. 

At Austrian Standards, you have multiple possibilities of shaping standards. 

90 percent of standards in Austria are of European or international origin

Austrian Standards is your gateway into a global standardization network. 

Become part of a strong community and participate. This is how you'll benefit: 

  • You are close to current trends and know which ones will hold. 
  • You make your products and services more solid - also for the international market.
  • You can adapt early to your customer's needs and lower costs through shorter development cycles. 

This is how you can shape standards
