We’ve got standards – have you?

The team at Standards New Zealand, are delighted to invite you to their inaugural Standards Matter seminar - a forum to explore and learn how you can use standards to deliver positive outcomes for all New Zealanders.

Standards are one of the tools policy makers and the private sector can use to protect people and our environment, increase productivity and drive innovation. Standards promote safety, consistency and reliability and cover a variety of subjects, including consumer products and services, the environment, building and construction, healthcare, safety, energy and water utilities information technology and more.

We don’t see standards but we all want to know they are there and working well.

Do you have standards and know how they can help you? 

This seminar is for people involved in leading, managing and developing policy and anyone that wants to better understand how standards can support their sector and industry. This event will offer attendees an informative and practical understanding with the ambition that everyone will learn something useful that they can apply to their own sector and industry.

Join us, together with key partners:

  • James Thompson - Fisher and Paykel Healthcare

to discuss how standards have added value to their industry, work and business.
