Each year on 14 October, the members of the IEC, ISO and ITU celebrate World Standards Day, which is a means of paying tribute to the collaborative efforts of thousands of experts worldwide who develop the voluntary technical agreements that are published as International Standards.

This year, Standards New Zealand will be hosting an expo event to showcase what's happening in the world of standards and recognise those who have contributed their time and expertise to the standards community.

It will be from 2-5pm on Monday 14 October at MBIE's offices, 15 Stout St, Wellington. More details will follow.
