Selecting standards committee members
Representative organisations are invited to nominate representatives
We invite organisations that represent the views of a large - usually national - group with a common interest in the area being addressed by the standards solution to nominate a representative for the committee. We review nominations and select committee members from them.
We ensure the committee has a balanced representation of stakeholder interests and the appropriate diversity of skills, knowledge, and experience relevant to the standard being developed. We submit the proposed make-up of the committee with the nominees' CVs and disclosure of interests to the independent New Zealand Standards Approval Board. Under the Standards and Accreditation Act 2015 the Board approves final committee membership.
