International engagement

Standards New Zealand is New Zealand’s national standards body. We offer solutions based on international, regional (trans-Tasman and Pacific), and national standards, and other guidance documents. We are New Zealand's representative at the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC), through the New Zealand National Committee of IEC.

We also have a wide network of contacts with other national standards bodies around the world and formal agreements with national standards bodies of significant importance to us, for example, a Memorandum of Understanding with Standards Australia.

Please note that we do not test products to particular standards and we are not a certification body. If you wish to have a product or service tested or certified to a standard you will need to contact a certifying body. For a list of these organisations, please contact either International Accreditation New Zealand (external link)  (IANZ), or Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand  (external link) (JAS-ANZ).
