The Commonwealth Standards Network aims to provide a platform for collaboration between NSBs and key stakeholders throughout the Commonwealth.

The objective of the network is to promote the role of standards as a tool to increase intra-Commonwealth trade and to strengthen the quality infrastructure in all our countries.

The network will build on the shared values and the economic ambitions of the 53 Commonwealth member states and will work to increase the use of standards throughout the Commonwealth.

The Commonwealth Standards Network will complement the vital work of ISO and IEC in standards making by facilitating activity on the ground to increase the value of standards for trade, innovation and for consumer and environmental protection.
